The New England area has been bursting with movies filming this summer, and the greater Boston region in particular has been chock full. Currently filming in the Swampscott area, Grown Ups 2, starring just about everyone you can think of, has been running a bit over schedule, as the film began shooting late in May, and does not seem to be ready to shut down any time soon. Hundreds of extras have been called in to film a party scene at a lot in Lynn, with background players being dressed in 80s style hair and make-up. The seeming ensemble of cast members on the film, including Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Tim Meadows, Steve Austin, Maya Rudolph, and more have been busy on the bustling set. Twilight heartthrob Taylor Lautner has even been spotted mingling with neighbors and fans who have gathered near the set to gawk, sending many teenage girls into a tizzy.
The Way, Way Back, starring Massachusetts native Steve Carrell is currently filming in his adopted hometown of Marshfield. The film also costars AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Amanda Peet, and Maya Rudolph, who is pulling double time between this project and Grown Ups 2.
Also filming all around Massachusetts is Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet and Tobey McGuire. The crew has been spotted in everywhere from Natick to Mansfield to Belchertown filming this drama about a depressed single mother who picks up a hitchhiker who might be an escaped convict. The film also costars Cheshire, Connecticut native, James Van Der Beek.
Recently wrapped in Connecticut, is the feature Hope Springs, costarring Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, and Steve Carell, once again. The picture filmed in Guilford, Norwalk, and Stonington, Connecticut earlier this year and will be out in theaters August 10th.
