We haven’t seen much in the way of The Cobbler in these parts since late last year. At the time, namely November, the quasi-indie flick transformed a section of working class Forsyth Street into the faux setting that included a shoe shop and barber. Adam Sandler and Method Man spent weeks filming onsite. Well, it […]

Adam Sandler Coming to the LES This Week to Film ‘The Cobbler’

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 […]
