New image from Tom McCarthy's The Cobbler starring Adam Sandler

Aug. 12, 2014by:

The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival is warming up and the first few films in the line-up have started to share some first or new images. Earlier today you saw Arnold Schwarzenegger taking care of his Zombie daughter, now it’s time to see Adam Sandler as THE COBBLER. I swear these sound like passed over SNL sketches the more I read about them. THE COBBLER is the latest from WIN WIN, THE VISITOR, and THE STATION AGENT director Tom McCarthy.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Max Simkin repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon a magical heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man’s shoes is the only way one can discover who they really are.

We shared the above image with you back in January, but I’m actually kind of digging this one so I figured it's worth a mention. McCarthy is three for three in my opinion, and Sandler urgently needs a return to drama; and while this seems like it will have some comedy/fantasy elements to it, we will take what we can get right?

THE COBBLER also stars Method Man, Ellen Barkin, Melonie Diaz, Dan Stevens, Fritz Weaver, Yul Vazquez, Steve Buscemi and Dustin Hoffman. There is no release date yet.

The Visitor was a great film

I have high hopes for The Cobbler. It sounds more like a drama, and Adam Sandler is a better dramatic actor than a comedian these days. Plus it is directed by a person who is fully capable of making a good film.

Even though I have not enjoyed an Adam Sandler movie since probably Click, I always have my fingers crossed that each new project will surprise me. It's nice to see him finally doing a movie outside of the Happy Madison Productions box he's been in for so long. I still think the man has some good movies in him. Maybe this will be one.
