THE COBBLER is described as a modern-day telling of a "shoe man who has the ability to metaphysically step into the lives of the people whose shoes he repairs."
"For a guy who's known as a funny guy, Adam has a very soulful quality to him," McCarthy tells the site. "One of the things that makes Adam right for [the role] is that he does handle the various levels of comedy very well. And he transitions really well from comedy to drama. He can make even the smallest, simplest moments funny."
Sandler will soon begin filming on Jason Reitman' Men Women & Children. His most recent films include Grown Ups 2 and That's My Boy.
