Sandler, Rock Reunite

Adam Sandler’s fourth Netflix movie will reunite him with Chris Rock, his co-star in The Longest Yard (2005) Grown-Ups (2010) and Grown-Ups 2 (2013).

In The Week Of, set to premiere in 2018, Sandler and Rock will play the respective fathers of a daughter and son about to marry each other.

The Week Of, which Sandler also co-wrote, marks his fourth movie for Netflix, following The Ridiculous 6 (2015), The Do-Over (2016) and the recently released Sandy Wexler. He is contracted for another four films, as well. In addition, Netflix later this year will be the streaming home for the theatrical movie The Meyerowitz Stories, written and directed by Noah Baumbach and starring Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller and Emma Thompson.

Rock is also no stranger to Netflix, with two stand-up specials planned, on top of an appearance in Bill Murray’s A Very Murray Christmas (2015).

Netflix subscribers can stream The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over and A Very Murray Christmas now.
