Following a run of box office bombs like “Jack & Jill” and “That’s My Boy,” Adam Sandler is once again taking a stab at drama.
According to “The Hollywood Reporter,” Sandler, who showed off his acting chops in dramedies like “Funny People” and “Spanglish,” is set to star in an indie drama titled “The Cobbler.”
In the film, he would star as the titular character, a shoemaker in the present day who “has the ability to metaphysically step into the lives of the people whose shoes he repairs.”
“The Cobbler” will then head to another drama, “Men Women & Children” from Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air”).
Also on his roster is a romantic comedy called “The Familymoon,” which marks his third time headlining a film with Drew Barrymore.
In the movie, which is currently filming, two divorced parents collide when what should be a first date turns into a disastrous blended family vacation.
