Filming Date & Plot Teased for Adam Sandler and Safdie Brothers New Project

Upon its release, the 2019 thriller Uncut Gems won several awards and accolades, thrusting the directorial duo of Josh and Benny Safdie into beaming success. Adam Sandler’s different-than-usual dramatic role of Howard Ratner, a gambling addict who gets mixed with loan sharks, earned him quite the applause. 

Sandler announced the trio was working together on a new untitled film on the Little Gold Men podcast last year. Since then, updates have been rare, but the actor gave us a little nugget about the film’s plot and filming date in an interview with Collider. 

Speaking about his upcoming Netflix film, the Grown Ups star revealed the film will revolve around the world of sports memorabilia and will begin filming in the summer of 2023. You can read his full answer below:

It’s in the sports memorabilia world. And I just kind of want them to decide how they want to present it. We’re working on that [starting filming], but I think this summer.

The actor had previously shared an update about the script being over 300 pages long, which obviously went through various cuts and revisions. If Sandler’s confident statement is anything to go by, they’ll begin production this year, we can expect the film to land in 2024.

Uncut Gems was a hit at the box office and among critics, a feat few independent films have done on a budget of $20 million. Though it did not get any Oscar nominations, the film has still earned many awards based on the actor’s performance, with several reviews labeling it as the best of his career.
