Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston posed as husband and wife in the 2011 rom-com “Just Go With It,” and they’ll play a married couple again in “Murder Mystery,” the latest comedy under Sandler’s movie deal with Netflix.
Now shooting in the Genoa and Lake Como areas of Italy, the movie casts Sandler as a New York City cop who takes his wife on a trip to Europe that takes a turn when a man they meet on a plane (Luke Evans) invites them to a party on a yacht. When the billionaire owner (Terence Stamp) is found dead, they become the prime suspects in the murder.
For Sandler, the location is a definite perk. “I love Italy,” he said in a statement. “I was here with my wife a year ago and loved it so much I brought the kids with me this time and an entire movie crew… great food, great people, great family life.”
The movie, directed by Kyle Newacheck, will premiere on Netflix in 2019. Sandler, meanwhile, is scheduled to shoot the crime dramedy “Uncut Gems” with writer-directors Benny and Josh Safdie this fall.
