A sequel to Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's Murder Mystery is in the works
The Netflix movie debuted over the summer.
A sequel to Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler's Murder Mystery is in the works at Netflix.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service is currently in negotiations with the original movie's writer Jame Vanderbilt to return for the sequel.
The publication notes that while the intention is to have both Sandler and Aniston return for the sequel, no deals have been set yet. However, Sandler has a first-look deal with the streaming service - and makes a lot of his movies for Netflix.
In case you haven't seen it yet, the movie follows a New York City cop who takes his wife, an avid fan of murder mystery novels, on a long-awaited European vacation.
But the holiday takes a surprising turn when a chance encounter leads to them getting an invite to an intimate gathering on a Super Yacht of an elderly billionaire, Malcom Quince.
But when Quince is murdered, the out-of-place American couple soon become the prime suspects.
They decide to try and clear their name, which - of course - leads to plenty of hijinks, including car chases (...and crashes) and even more poorly-aimed gun shots.
The film stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston, and Luke Evans - three massive names in Hollywood.
