'Win Win' helmer Tom McCarthy will direct
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.
