The Weeknd is making his silver screen debut this winter. He’s set to star alongside Adam Sandler, Idina Menzel, Julia Fox, former NBA star Kevin Garnett, and more in an upcoming crime thriller.
The film, titled Uncut Gems, follows the story of high-stakes jeweler Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler). TIFF describes the story as “a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime.” “Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.”
The film is currently scheduled for a Christmas Day release (December 25, 2019).
