New Safdie Brothers Adam Sandler Netflix Movie: Everything We Know So Far

Date:

Adam Sandler and the Safdie Brothers are collaborating on a new feature film exclusively for Netflix. Here’s the lowdown on what we know so far about the project. 

First announced in October 2022, the Safdie Brothers (comprising of Benny and Josh Safdie) will be writing, producing, and directing a brand new movie bound exclusively for Netflix.

The trio worked together on Uncut Gems for A24, released in 2020 to rave reviews. The project remains on Netflix outside the United States as a Netflix Original title, but in the United States, the movie sadly departed the service last May.

Alongside their work on this new Adam Sandler Netflix project, the Safdie Brothers are also working on a new comedy series via A24 Television scheduled to release on Showtime, The Curse. Both serve as executive producers. Filming for the series took place throughout 2022, but a release date has yet to be set.

What’s the new Safdie Brothers Netflix movie about?

Details on what exactly the new movie is about are still extremely slim.

When the project was first announced, it was only said to be “in the world of sports,” whereas that’s since been refined to “Set in the world of high-end sports card collecting.”

We’ve heard the movie is explicitly about Baseball cards in New York City during the 1990s.

Who will star in the new Safdie Brothers Netflix movie?

We’ve also heard that Benicio del Toro is or, at one point, was eyed for a role in the forthcoming movie. Best known for films like Sicario and The Usual Suspects, the veteran is also set to appear in the Netflix Original movie Reptile, released in 2023.

Daniel Richtman has also reported that Gael García Bernal, the Mexican actor best known for Werewolf by Night, Coco and Old, is also in talks for a role.

Netflix did not respond to a request for comment on the potential casting of Benicio del Toro for the project.

We’ve also found an open casting call which is believed to be attached to the upcoming Safdie movie (it matches the production dates, and the casting company, jv8inc, worked on Uncut Gems).

When will the movie begin production?

In a VanityFair interview, Sandler originally stated that the movie was due to “supposed to start in the late winter.”

When asked about whether he expects the filming schedule and time on set to be intense, Sandler said:

“Yeah, because of how much these guys care. And how much I don’t want to let them down. And I see how hard they work, and just like when I’m working on my comedies with my friends, it means a lot to us. Every joke means a lot. The Safdie boys, every word means a lot to them, and every movie frame means a lot. So I don’t want to walk through anything. I care about it, and I respect those guys so much.”

According to reports, filming was due to be underway on the project from April 3rd, 2023, but it’s unclear whether that’ll be the case.

Newer listings point to June 2023 filming starting August 2023 in New York City.

That’s all we have for now. Let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to watching the Adam Sandler Safdie Brothers reunion in the comments below.
