Uncut Gems centers around Howard Ratner, played by Sandler, a charismatic jewelry dealer with many high-profile New York clients, including Kevin Garnett and The Weeknd—both portrayed by themselves in the film.
“When he makes 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,” reads the film synopsis.
The film also stars Indina Menzel, Julia Fox, Eric Bogosian, and Judd Hirsch and has already earned rave reviews from its fall festival screenings, with many calling it a career-high for Sandler.
The Safdie brothers directed and the legendary Martin Scorsese executive produced the project.
Uncut Gems is due in theaters December 13, 2019
