Uncut Gems (2019, D: Safdie Brothers) S: Sandler, Stanfield, Menzel, Garnett, Fox, Bogosian

EXCLUSIVE: Sorry To Bother You and Atlanta star Lakeith Stanfield is joining Adam Sandler in the Safdie Brothers and A24’s crime-dramedy Uncut Gems while Netflix has boarded all international rights. This one is heating up.

Set in the Diamond district of New York City, Sandler will star as a jewelry store owner with a gambling addiction who is juggling two relationships and escalating debts. Stanfield will play a key ally to a famous client of the jewelry store. As we previously revealed, Eric Bogosian and Judd Hirsch are also set to star in the film, which is likely to shoot later this year. Casting is ongoing.

Pic’s script comes from the Safdies — Josh and Ben — and regular writing collaborator Ronald Bronstein. Producers are Scott Rudin and Eli Bush through Scott Rudin Productions and Elara Pictures’ Sebastian Bear-McClard and Oscar Boyson. Martin Scorsese & Emma Tillinger Koskoff are executive producers.

A24, which also handled the Safdies’ Robert Pattinson crime-drama Good Time, retains U.S. rights. Netflix remains as hungry as ever — it just snapped up global rights to Steven Soderbergh’s new movie High Flying Bird. Uncut Gems isn’t part of the platform’s movie deal with Sandler.
Looking forward to something new from the Safdies after Good Time.

My sentiments exactly. I read an early review saying that Pattinson in Good Time unquestionably outdoes Sandler in the acting department, but the Safdies know exactly how to use their cast and get the most out of Mr. Happy Gilmore. Really looking forward to this.

It's already screened at multiple festivals. Surprised they don't have a trailer out already.

Yeah, a lot of reviews say it's pure cinematic anxiety. Sounds great

If you have the Criterion Channel, a bunch of their early films were added.

I'll definitely give this a watch since it's a Safdie Brothers film.

He’s in the Oscar race for this. Supposedly he’s amazing.

And I hear KG gives maybe the best performance by an athlete in movie history.

I feel like the Safdie Brothers have the potential to be the next Coen Brothers in terms of the quality of their films and the acclaim they receive. I'm so stoked for this movie.

Just saw this. What a ride. Sandler's best performance. Thoroughly intense film that gives you no chance to breathe or relax. Could've taken some easy turns into schlock or exploitation but never does.

Go see this.

I know someone who has seen this early and I pretty much fall in line with how he feels on movies. He didn't like it at all and when I told him it was getting raves he said for what? I told him Sanlder and Garnett mostly. He was sort of shocked and was surprised that the critics were favorable to it.

Means nothing in the grand scheme of things of course. I still would like to see it. But now it may be a wait for home video vs. theater depending on our time. We had planned on seeing this on Christmas day since we don't have plans. May choose something else. Knives Out will probably be the choice or Bombshell.
