What’s more bizzare: The Weeknd acting? Or an Adam Sandler “crime/drama”?
Adam Sandler’s next movie, “Uncut Gems”…is a gritty crime drama, with Martin Scorsese working as the Executive Producer.
The movie will also star Idina Menzel, Judd Hirsch….and Toronto’s The Weeknd.

We’re not sure how much of a role Weeknd will play…but it’s going down as his first ever acting credit. (Besides music videos, of course.)
As for the movie’s premise:
The drama follows Sandler’s character, a jewelry store owner with a gambling addiction who is desperate to find a way to pay off his debts.
Incredible. It sounds right in Adam Sandler’s wheelhouse.
The movie has been shooting for a couple weeks, but has no expected release date.
