Toronto crooner Abel Tesfaye, better known as The Weeknd, is ready to make his debut on the big screen.
The film previewed at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the movie was described as, “an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. 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.”
The film is currently set to run 135 minutes, so just over 2 hours. It is set to open in theaters on Christmas this year with a trailer set to drop as soon as September.
