Adam Sandler is not a morning person in 'The Cobbler' first look

Adam Sandler might own his own subgenre of silly comedy, but he demonstrated long ago, in movies like Punch-Drunk Love, that his range extends beyond funny voices and sophomoric pranks. Sandler returns to more sophisticated storytelling in The Cobbler, playing a lonely New York shoe repairman who starts to sense that he’s let life pass him by — going nowhere while fixing the shoes of more-assertive customers taking vacations and living adventures. Things change, though, when he discovers a family heirloom that magically lets him “walk in another man’s shoes” and see the world differently.

“For a guy who’s known as a funny guy, Adam has a very soulful quality to him,” says co-writer and director Tom McCarthy (Win Win). “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.”

I vant … to suck … your sequel!

Sony Pictures Animation has confirmed that a sequel to its box office vamp hit Hotel Transylvania, aptly titled Hotel Transylvania 2, is scheduled to be released Sept. 25, 2015.

No other details have been announced. Hotel Transylvania director Genndy Tartakovsky is already directing Popeye, set for release September 2014.

Will the first monster hotel flick’s Adam Sandler as Dracula, Selena Gomez as his teen vampire daughter Mavis and Andy Samberg as Mavis’ human love interest Jonathan be back in the sequel? Let’s hope Steve Buscemi voicing a bleary-eyed wolfin dad with too many crazed pups makes another hilarious appearance.
