In addition to Stanfield’s casting, Netflix has also boarded all international rights for the film. The crime-comedy drama will take place in the Diamond district of New York City, and Adam Sandler stars as a jewelry store owner with a gambling problem, who is also experiencing other issues with two relationships and debts. In comparison, Stanfield will allegedly portray a close friend to a famous client of the jewelry store.
With casting still ongoing, other notable actors already slotted to star are Eric Bogosian and Judd Hirsch, while Martin Scorsese and Emma Tillinger Koskoff are executive producers.
Filming for Uncut Gems is slated to occur later this year, with an official release date still undetermined. For more details, head over to Deadline.
