Rock is set to join Sandler in the upcoming Netflix comedy "The Week Of," according to THR. The two funnymen will play fathers whose kids are getting married and follow the week leading up to the wedding. The script comes from Sandler and Robert Smigel, who doubles as the flick's director.
"The Week Of" will be the fourth Netflix original movie from Sandler but not the last. The comedian originally had a four-picture deal with the streamer, and they have since gone on to renew it. Meanwhile, Rock has been working on projects for Netflix as well; he has a deal for two stand-up specials.
The two comedians have teamed up multiple times in the past, to hilarious results. Not only did they pull off some LOL-inducing sketches as "Saturday Night Live" cast members in the early '90s, they both starred in the 2010 comedy "Grown Ups" and its 2013 sequel. Rock even made a cameo in Sandler's most recent Netflix comedy, "Sandy Wexler." Seeing them reunited again ... well, it will feel so good.
Production is slated to being in Long Island, New York, this summer, and then "The Week Of" will premiere on Netflix in 2018.
