Though it does hinge on the concept of magical shoes, Adam Sandler is in talks to star in an honest to goodness quality movie. One that involves more acting and less yelling.

The Station Agent's Tom McCarthy has his sights on Sandler to star in The Cobbler, an indie drama about a shoe repairman who metaphysically steps into the lives of the people whose shoes he repairs. If this were in Dennis Dugan's hands, I'd be rolling my eyes. But, for now, it's nice to see Sandler in a movie about shoes that won't require him to put Kevin James's toes in his mouth. (THR)
