Adam Sandler is reuniting with Uncut Gems costar Idina Menzel for a film adaptation of Fiona Rosenbloom's coming-of-age novel, You Are SO Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah!

Sandler will star in and produce the coming-of-age Netflix film, which follows a young girl, Stacy Friedman, as she prepares for one of the most important events of her life: her bat mitzvah. But her plans unravel when she catches her BFF kissing her crush, Andy Goldfarb.

Sandler and Menzel, who played spouses in Uncut Gems, will be joined by Sarah Sherman, Luis Guzmán, Ido Mosseri, Samantha Lorraine, Dylan Hoffman, Dean Scott Vazquez, Miya Cech, Ivory Baker, Dylan Dash, Millie Thorpe, and Zaara Kuttemperoor. Sandler's entire family, comprised of his wife Jackie and their daughters Sadie and Sunny, will also feature in the comedy.

Sammi Cohen (Crush) will direct the adaptation written by Alison Peck (Work It). Sandler will produce alongside Tim Herlihy, Leslie Morgenstein, and Elysa Koplovitz Dutton. Barry Bernardi, Judit Maull, and Kevin Grady will executive produce. You Are SO Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah! is the latest title to join Netflix's Sandlerverse, following Hustle, Murder Mystery, and Uncut Gems.

The news comes after Sandler — mastermind of "The Chanukah Song" and "Bar Mitzvah Boy" — celebrated his daughter Sadie's bat mitzvah in May. The star-studded guest list included Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Puth, Taylor Lautner, Halsey, and more. Halsey compared the celebration to Coachella during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

"It was the craziest bat mitzvah I've ever seen in my life," Halsey said. "As you would expect from Adam Sandler. I mean, it was like Coachella. I couldn't believe it. I was like, 'Wow, you guys booked me?' I was really honored."
