Peabody, MA was abuzz this week when Adam Sandler and the cast and crew of his new film, I Hate You Dad took over the town. A casting call was held in Boston last month for the new comedy and shooting began in Massachusetts on Monday.
The film crew took over a Peabody apartment complex, converting the building into a graffiti-covered drug house.
While some residents were pestered by the crew’s presence, others were excited to do some stargazing in the Bay State. Adam Sandler was seen on set, as well as one-hit-wonder Vanilla Ice, who plays a wedding planner in the film. Sandler was said to have stopped at nearby, Carroll Elementary School to speak to students about summer reading.
Andy Samberg, Leighton Meester, Susan Sarandon and Ian Ziering also star in the comedy, due in theaters next summer.
