The Weeknd has proved himself to be a talented singer, but now we'll see if he can act too! He was cast alongside veteran actor/comedian, Adam Sandler, in "Uncut Gems". Thisindependent film will hit the Toronto International Film Festival sometime this year.
The movie is about a New York City jeweler (Adam Sandler) who makes a high-stake bet that could mess-up his world drastically. It's a 135-minute crime thriller that a lot of festival attendees are excited to see. Yesterday, The Weeknd tweeted out a picture of Sandler in character and tagged the film makers, festival, and Adam.
It was produced by filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie.
