Dan Stevens is an increasingly busy man. Even since he left Downton Abbey he’s booked a slew of roles in the likes of The Fifth Estate, A Walk Among The Tombstone, The Guest and just a few days ago, Night At The Museum 3.
Now he’s got another as Variety reports he’s joined the cast of The Cobbler, alongside Adam Sandler. Tom McCarthy is set to direct.
Not too much is known about the film, other than it’s set in the modern day and follows ‘a shoe man who has the ability to metaphysically step into the lives of the people whose shoes he repairs.’
McCarthy is best known for The Station Agent and The Visitor, and will start filming The Cobbler very soon, as Sandler wants to fit it in before moving on to Jason Reitman’s Men Women & Children (another less overtly comic venture for the actor). It also mean Stevens has time for this before Night At The Museum 3 begins shooting in January.
