June is sure to be a star-studded month in Boston. New Hampshire native, Adam Sandler is due back in town this summer to shoot his latest comedy, I Hate You, Dad.
The Boston Herald reported location scouts were in town last month checking out possible Boston shoot locations at the W Hotel and a State Street law firm. Sandler’s 2010 comedy Grown Ups was shot throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire two years ago.
I Hate You, Dad is about the chaos that ensues after a father (Sandler) moves in with his son and clashes with his son’s fiancee. ”Saturday Night Live” funny man Andy Samberg is set to star as Sandler’s son and “Gossip Girl” Leighton Meester has signed on as his fiancee. In a surprising twist, 90′s rap star Vanilla Ice (real name, Robert Van Winkle) has been cast as the couple’s wedding planner, according to the Boston Globe. As if I Hate You, Dad didn’t hold enough star power, Hollywood legend James Caan has also been cast in the flick.
