Adam Sandler in Talks for Indie Drama ‘The Cobbler’

'Win Win' helmer Tom McCarthy will direct

Adam Sandler may be returning to the dramatic scene as he is in talks to star in the indie drama “The Cobbler,” which Tom McCarthy is directing.

Mary Jane Skalski is producing the feature. Plot details are being kept under wraps.

Comedian Sandler was previously seen in dramas including Paul Thomas Anderson’s cult hit “Punch Drunk Love” and 2007’s “Reign Over Me.”

In addition to “The Cobbler,” Sandler is circling Jason Reitman’s next film “Men, Women & Children,” so it’s unclear which movie he will do first.

Actor-turned-director McCarthy last helmed “Win Win” and “The Visitor.”

Sandler is repped by WME while McCarthy is at Gersh Agency.

        Personally I hate Sandler, one of the most pathetic actors. His ugly face puts me off, and the movies are always too shallow and full of lame jokes. But I do enjoy Jeeves and Wooster, immensely. Do you believe it’s wrong? Taste differ, mate.

    Not another Big Dipper Goes to Heaven, remake – by Happy Madison productions! Adam can do so much better. Like John Galt Goes to Hollywood. Instead he does this useless crap that nobody wants to see…
