“The Cobbler” stars Adam Sandler
One week after The Knick occupation, another invasion is on the way…
Adam Sandler hasn’t made a halfway-decent movie since Big Daddy … or maybe Punch Drunk Love. Much like the latter, he’s now starring in another indie-leaning film directed by Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor). Apparently the new drama is called The Cobbler, and it’ll be camped on the streets of the Lower East Side from today through Friday. Forsyth and Eldridge, south of Delancey, are already papered with “no parking” signs. Ergo, expect filming in and around Sara D. Roosevelt Park.
As the name suggests, Sandler stars as a cobbler who carries the metaphysical ability to assume the lives of the people whose footwear he fixes. Sounds like a somewhat similar concept to the Twilight Zone episode (“Dead Man’s Shoes”) that takes place on the Bowery.
Furthermore, XXL reported last week that Method Man is also in the movie, and that principal filming will continue until the end of the year.
