Adam Sandler to star in Safdie Brothers movie again
As with other performers on the Hollywood scene, such as Nicolas Cage, Adam Sandler is considered a bad actor. Or, if he does not consider that, at least it is clear that the bulk of his filmography comprises low-quality comedies.
However, if there is something that the industry has shown year after year, it is that any actor can surprise the world with a role. In the case of Sandler, this happened with the recent Diamonds in the Rough, the story of crime and greed produced by Netflix in which he was unfairly not nominated for Best Actor at the 2020 Oscars. According to Indiewire, the directors of the crime drama ( the Safdie brothers) will collaborate with Sandler again on a new feature film.
Currently, neither the title nor the plot of this new bet is known, but it is expected to happen more around 2023 since both the directors and the comedian currently have busy schedules. The filmmakers are immersed in The Curse, a Showtime series starring Emma Stone, while Sandler is shooting the sequel to Criminals at Sea.
In addition to this latest project, the actor is involved in Spaceman, a science fiction feature film in which he shares a cast with Carey Mulligan and Paul Dano. Forays into auteur cinema are not a complete novelty on Adam Sandler’s agenda. In 2002 he premiered Punch-Drunk Love by Paul Thomas Anderson, and in 2017, he reported to Noah Baumbach in The Meyerowitz Stories.
Benny and Josh Safdie are the duos of the moment in the authorial direction, with the permission of the commercial vision that the Russos manage. They premiered in 2014 with Heaven Know What, and both have also appeared in multiple films as performers. Although he dee the two, Beny is the natural visible face, thanks in part to the excellent display in front of the camera.
This year we have been able to see him in Licorice Pizza as the aspiring senator Joel Wachs or in the future Obi-Wan Kenobi series, in which he has a role yet to be revealed. The Safdies continued to manage frenetic underworld stories with the Good great time, starring Robert Pattinson. Again, they reached the top, polishing the jewel of his style in Diamonds in the Rough.
