The first details on the next Adam Sandler movie have been revealed–and he’s recruiting another big name in comedy for it. According to Collider, Netflix announced today that Chris Rock will appear in The Week Of, which will be directed by Saturday Night Live‘s Robert Smigel.
The wedding comedy tells the story of the time immediately before Sandler’s movie daughter gets married to Rock’s movie son. Further plot details haven’t been released yet, but you can probably imagine all the wacky things that could happen when they come together under those circumstances.
Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement, “Adam Sandler and Chris Rock are cornerstones of the Netflix comedy family and we are over the moon about these two legends reuniting to give our members worldwide a healthy dose of the hilarity that they have been creating together for years. Similar in the romantic comedy tone of Sandler’s most recent film Sandy Wexler, this film will be the perfect vehicle for Sandler and Rock and their millions of fans around the world.”
The Week Of is the fourth movie in Sandler’s original four-movie deal with Netflix and will premiere in 2018, according to Deadline. Netflix and Sandler have since reached a new deal for a further four movies, which is no surprise given how successful they have been.
Smigel, Sandler, and Rock have worked together in the past, most recently on the movie Grown Ups that starred Sandler and Rock.
As for Rock, he recently reached a deal for two comedy specials to air on Netflix reportedly worth $40 million
