Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller have long been comedic geniuses in their own right — and now, they’re finally joining forces.
The Film Stage reports that the two actors are in New York City shooting director Noah Baumbach new film, en Din Ka Kissa, which translates to The Story Of The Day in Hindi. Sandler and Stiller are reportedly playing brothers in the film, which also marks their first time co-starring together. (Stiller made a brief appearance in Sandler’s 1996 comedy, Happy Gilmore, but the two haven’t shared the screen since.)
Though there wasn’t an official announcement about the project, a filming notice reveals that the plot is about an “estranged New York family coming together in preparation of artist and patriarch Harold’s career retrospective.”
The new movie also stars Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, who portray Sandler and Stiller’s parents, as well as actress Grace Van Patten (Boardwalk Empire). In a recent interview with USA Today, Thompson revealed that her character is a “dreadful, passive-aggressive.”
While this is the first time Sandler and Baumbach have collaborated, Stiller has worked with the director on 2010’s Greenberg and last year’s Mistress America, both written and directed by Baumbach.
While the film is now in production, no official release date has been announced.
