The Cobbler

It's been far too long since Adam Sandler took a break from his stupid comedies like Grown Ups 2, That's My Boy and other garbage we'd rather forget about. Thankfully, Sandler is getting back to some solid filmmaking akin to his praiseworthy turns in films like Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish and Reign Over Me. Director Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent) has Sandler leading his film The Cobbler, and we have a first look photo from the film. Sandler certainly looks tired (that's probably the idea) sipping some coffee out in front of his shoe shop. Hopefully McCarthy and Sandler deliver a charming little flick.

Here's the first look at Thomas McCarthy's The Cobbler from Entertainment Weekly:

The Cobbler

The Cobbler is directed by Thomas McCarthy (Win Win, The Station Agent, The Visitor) from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Paul Sado. In the film, Adam Sandler plays a shoe repair man who suddenly finds himself with the ability to literally walk in other people's shoes; he can metaphysically step into their lives for a certain period of time. Dustin Hoffman, Method Man, Melonie Diaz, Ellen Barkin, Dan Stevens and Steve Buscemi also star in the film, which doesn't have a release date, but is expected this year. Stay tuned.

      Agreed, dunno why people hate on it as much as grown ups

        I had no expectations whatsoever. My girl and I were able to laugh our asses off because of that. I'm sure if others went in with the same mindset, they'd be able to enjoy it as well.

    Method Man is a good actor when he wants to be.
