Preview:

  • George Clooney and Adam Sandler are teaming up for a new movie.
  • ‘Barbie’ co-writer Noah Baumbach is directing.
  • Beyond Netflix backing the movie, it’s mostly a mystery at this point.

George Clooney and Adam Sandler is not a combination of actors we ever really expected to see in one film, but ‘Marriage Story’ director Noah Baumbach is the man making it happen.

According to Deadline, Clooney and Sandler are both on board for Baumbach’s latest, which like his last few movies including the recent ‘White Noise’, he’s making for Netflix.

What’s the story of Baumbach’s new film?

Little is known properly about the plot of this untitled project yet –– all Deadline was able to discover was that it’s described as “a funny and emotional coming-of-age film about adults.” Which certainly has echoes of one of Baumbach’s earlier Netflix productions, ‘The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)’, which also starred Sandler.

And unlike some other recent films which Baumbach wrote with his longtime life and creative partner Greta Gerwig (including this year’s biggest success, ‘Barbie’), he worked on this one with actor Emily Mortimer.

Amy Pascal (more normally found shepherding Sony’s Spider-output) and David Heyman (best known for the ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Paddington’ movies will produce this new film, which has yet to announce when it might start and certainly doesn’t have a release date on the schedule yet.

George Clooney’s own latest directorial effort, historical sports drama ‘The Boys in the Boat’ comes to theaters on December 25th. He’s not on screen in that one, but will appear in ‘Wolfs’, the new film from ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy director Jon Watts, in which plays opposite ‘Ocean’s franchise friend Brad Pitt as one of two fixers who are assigned to the same job. That one doesn’t have a release date, but will hit theaters via Apple and Sony, presumably next year.

And talking of ‘Oceans’, Clooney recently told Uproxx that a script exists for a new instalment of the heist films.

Here’s what he said:

“We have a really good script for another ‘Ocean’s now, so we may end up doing another one. It’s actually a great script. I don’t want to call it ‘Ocean’s 14’, the idea is kind of like ‘Going In Style’.”

What’s next for Sandler?

Adam Sandler has a Netflix deal much like Baumbach, and most recently released animated comedy adventure ‘Leo’. He has another film set to arrive on the streaming service, this time the sci-fi adventure ‘Spaceman’, which also stars Carey Mulligan, Paul Dano and Isabella Rossellini.

And he’s also reunited with Benny and Josh Safdie, who he previously collaborated with on ‘Uncut Gems’. Little is known about that one for now.
