Looks like Adam Sandler is remembering that he’s quite the prolific actor when he wants to be. The Sandman is pushing his Murder Mystery aside for something that will likely be a lot more Punch-Drunk Love than Jack and Jill as he’s set to reunite with The Meyerowitz Stories director Noah Baumbach for a new project. While plot details are still under wraps, the basic premise is described as a “funny and emotional coming-of-age movie about adults.” Another of those aforementioned adults in the picture? Oscar-winning actor George Clooney. The movie will be headed straight to Netflix thanks to the Marriage Story director’s deal with the streamer, which was also home to his most recent solo venture White Noise.
As we await the Baumbach/Sander/Clooney team-up, another much-talked-about movie starts streaming next week: Bradley Cooper’s Maestro. Given that it’s awards season, we’ve heard contenders talk about just about anything that will fill airtime. Case in point: Cooper’s “no chairs rule.” During Variety’s Directors on Directors, Cooper explained to Spike Lee that when he’s taking on directing duties, “there’s no chairs” because the “energy dips the minute you sit down in a chair.” An ever-kind man, Cooper does at least offer his cast and crew an apple box for their lower-back woes.
All the while, the timeline has blessed us with a new batch of hysterical tweets. Today’s funniest include those about how to care for a friend with anxiety, the male tramp stamp and the dangers of moving to Oregon.
