Adam Sandler

'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.
