Adam Sandler has been on a roll lately with making crappy movies, but he's now looking to join an indie drama being directed by Tom McCarthy called The Cobbler.
According to THR, the modern day film tells the story of "a shoe man who has the ability to metaphysically step into the lives of the people whose shoes he repairs."
Sandler will play the cobbler, and he hopes to fit the movie in before he shoots Jason Reitman’s latest project, Men Women & Children. So Sandler actually has a couple of decent sounding films in development. Sure the movies won't make a ton of money, but they might wash the bad taste out of our mouths from the crappy movies he's been making.
McCarthy is the director behind the great indie dramas The Station Agent and The Visitor, and I imagine this new movie is going to be just as good as his previous work.
