Adam Sandler Filming in Essex in May

3/17/2009 12:01:00 AM
Woohooo! Adam Sandler is definitely coming to film his movie in May (here). And he's bringing a host of other cool guys with him: Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider. The Globe blurb says they're going to be filming in Essex, MA. But hopefully they'll do some filming in downtown Boston as well.

Lakefront Productions, Inc., affiliated with Columbia Pictures and Sandler's Happy Madison Productions, signed an agreement with Essex selectmen this week allowing filming in the town's Centennial Grove park. The flick, about five high school buddies who reunite on the Fourth of July after 30 years apart, will star Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider. A crew will film at a grove cottage and in other areas of the park. According to a town news release, "Preparation for filming has already begun and it is expected that filming will occur this summer with site restoration to be completed by September 15." Essex will get $150,000 for property use and parking. The film will be directed by Dennis Dugan, the guy behind "You Don't Mess With the Zohan" and "Happy Gilmore." Shooting is expected to start in May.
