I just watched the Wedding Singer again this past weekend for probably the 100th time (it was on TBS or TNT again). I'm a fan of Adam Sandler, I remember watching him on SNL while growing up, and also a friend of mine had a few of his "albums" which we'd listen to all the time.

According to the Globe, Adam Sandler and a huge crew of other folks will be in town in May to film a new comedy.

New Hampshire native Adam Sandler (above) and a promising cast of cut-ups that includes David Spade, Chris Rock, and Kevin James, are on their way to Boston to shoot a goofy new comedy. To be directed by Dennis Dugan, who's been behind the camera for a string of Sandler films, including "You Don't Mess With the Zohan," "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," and "Happy Gilmore," the new, still-untitled movie is about a group of guys who return to the town where they grew up. (Sounds a little like Lawrence Kasdan's "The Big Chill," but, hopefully, funnier.) We're told the cast also includes Rob Schneider, Steve Buscemi, and Norm MacDonald. The female leads haven't been set yet, but Salma Hayek's name has been mentioned as a possibility. Dugan was scouting locations here last week, and went to the Celtics-Lakers game with the film's production designer and the screenwriter Fred Wolf, whose credits include the comedies "Joe Dirt" and "Black Sheep." (They're all Lakers fans, so they were pleased with the outcome of the game.) The shoot is expected to start in May and last 66 days, which is longer than some other recent made-in-Massachusetts comedies.

If they do get Salma Hayek, it'll be just about a year since her last visit to Boston (that I know of) - she was here to christen a boat last May (here).

    I think it is great they are at Water Wizz and are in Wareham. Hope the future holds more movies in the area. Plymouth Rock Studios will be a plus to all as well in Plymouth, MA. Oh yea, saw David Spade at Wendy's today on Cranberry Hwy.

    I think it is great that Water Wizz and Wareham were chosen. Perhaps more movies to follow in the area when Plymouth Rock Studios opens in Plymouth, MA.
    Oh yea, was behind David Spade at Wendy's on Cranberry Hwy.

    We wee just at water whizz and saw Adam Sandler and Selma Hayek filming by the wave pool. It was fun to watch, but they hogged the wave pool all day. I think the film crew should have done something for all the paying customers who coulld only use half the park at full price.

    I was at Water Wizz in Wareham, MA last Saturday and they were setting up to film & I heard like this weekend (today & tomorrow) part of the water park will be closed because of the filming. That's what the lady at the front desk of Water Wizz said. So yeah! :)

    J.macro please grow the **** up. If this movie was filmed in any other town people would be acting the same way when they might be a backround in a movie. Also water wizz is mostly tourist. I'm from wareham and not a lot of wareham kids actualy go to water wizz more than once every two years. Who ever said it was a hick town its really not even close. There is a trailer park across from water wizz but that's the only hick thing I've seen in wareham. There are some trashy people and a lot of the kids think there a bunch of gangsters but its not a hick town. So please know what your talking about before you write something.
