Sandler’s also producing the Netflix original film along with Allen Covert, and Barry Bernardi and Tim Herlihy are executive producing. Filming’s expected to take place in Long Island this summer, with Netflix targeting a 2018 premiere.
“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,” stated Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer.
