During the pair’s conversation, which was shared in a fan account’s Twitter post, Sandler broached the topic of another movie by suggesting to Aniston that they should get dinner in the near future.
The 52-year-old actress then proposed that the two should see each other on multiple occasions, although her 55-year-old actor noted that ‘a lot of people died’ the last time they did so.
The Friends star pointed out that their experiences happened in the original Murder Mystery film and that fewer deaths should occur during their next outing.
The actress went on to ask if her friend could add David Spade to the call, and he promptly asked Aniston if he would be able to relax and skinny dip at her beach house while she was not there.

Development on a sequel was initially reported by The Hollywood Reporter in 2019, and the media outlet noted that the original feature’s writer, James Vanderbilt, would return to pen the second feature’s script.
Aniston and Sandler had not signed on to reprise their roles as the Spitzes at the time.
This past August, Deadline reported that Jeremy Garelick had been brought in to serve as the sequel’s director.
They also noted that the filmmaker would also rework Vanderbilt’s script prior to the start of production.
