April 26 (UPI) -- Saturday Night Live icons Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, who also co-starred in two Grown Ups blockbusters, are to reunite for Netflix's The Week Of.

Set to begin production on Long Island this summer, the film will be directed by SNL writer and producer Robert Smigel. Sandler and Smigel co-wrote the script for The Week Of, which is slated to premiere globally on the streaming service in 2018.

The wedding comedy sees Sandler playing the father of the bride and Rock portraying the father of the groom.  

"Adam Sandler and Chris Rock are cornerstones of the Netflix comedy family and we are over the moon about these two legends reuniting to give our members worldwide a healthy dose of the hilarity that they have been creating together for years. Similar in the romantic comedy tone of Sandler's most recent film Sandy Wexler, this film will be the perfect vehicle for Sandler and Rock and their millions of fans around the world," Ted Sarandos, Netflix's chief content officer, said in a statement Tuesday.
