'Uncut Gems': Lakeith Stanfield Joins Adam Sandler In A24 Crime-Dramedy, Netflix Takes All Rights

Netflix has taken the global rights to an upcoming A24 crime dramedy which Lakeith Stanfield has just boarded.

Stanfield joins Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems.

Both actors have a history with the streaming giant. Stanfield appeared in Death Note and is set for Someone Great with Gina Rodriguez and DeWanda Wise. Uncut Gems, however, is not a part of Sandler’s pact with Netflix.

Here’s the Uncut Gems description per Deadline, who exclusively reported this news: 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. 

Martin Scorsese is an executive producer.

Stanfield will be seen soon with Claire Foy in The Girl in the Spider’s Web.
