Netflix has reunited Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler for its upcoming mystery comedy film, Murder Mystery, as couple Audrey and Nick Spitz. Sandler plays a New York City police officer who finally decides to take his wife—played by Aniston—on a long-awaited trip to Europe. The couple travels across the Atlantic to Italy with plans to finally enjoy the honeymoon they never had. The trip takes a turn after the couple meet a handsome and glamorous stranger named Charles, and end up invited to an intimate family gathering aboard the “Super Yacht” of billionaire Malcolm Quince. Their charming surroundings quickly turn ugly when Quince winds up dead. Audrey and Nick are targeted as prime suspects, and the chase—through the Italian countryside, naturally—is on from there.
The pair of actors previously worked together in 2011’s Just Go With It, in which Aniston played Sandler’s fake ex-wife. Instead of the mild Mediterranean, the two found themselves on location in Hawaii. After the box office success of Just Go With It, it’s no surprise that the duo would reunite for another comedy. In addition to mystery and comedy, Murder Mystery is also filled with action-packed scenes and offers amazing views of Italy—its filming locations include Santa Margherita Ligure, Lake Como, and Milan. The film—directed by Kyle Newacheck and written by James Vanderbilt—also stars Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, Luis Gerardo Mendez, and Terence Stamp.
Will Nick and Audrey successfully clear their name and make it back home? You’ll have to stream it this summer to find out! Murder Mystery will be available on Netflix June 14th.
