Adam Sandler on Forsyth St. for ‘The Cobbler’

Last week, Adam Sandler’s latest project, The Cobbler, spent four days shooting in and around Forsyth Street. Two of the mid-block storefronts were even transformed to help tell the story, and remained masqueraded over the weekend in anticipation of additional filming. That’s right; the indie flick is returning to the Lower East Side today and will continue through Friday.

This time around, however, the occupation will be more wide-ranging. Laminated signs mark a territory with north/south borders of Delancey/Canal and Essex/Forsyth on the east/west. So, expect to see lots of Sandler. The bulk of the filming will still be outside Forsyth Street, though.

The Cobbler is an indie-drama which stars Sandler as a cobbler who carries the metaphysical ability to assume the lives of the people whose footwear he fixes. Co-stars include rapper/actor Method Man and Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey. It’s directed by Tom McCarthy.
