Filming Moves to Marblehead Neck
Be prepared for some traffic detours on Marblehead Neck while cameras are rolling.
Don't be surprised if you see an increase in traffic along the causeway to Marblehead Neck this week as Columbia Pictures film crews shoot scenes for the Adam Sandler movie Grown Ups 2.
Columbia Pictures Location Manager Mark Fitzgerald was out on Ocean Avenue Monday afternoon, looking as a landscaping crew spruced up the front lawn of the mansion at the entrance to Marblehead Neck.
The front porch of the house had been taped off with black fabric and it appeared that getting the exterior of the house ready would be the focus Monday afternoon.
According to the plan presented Wednesday, filming will continue in Marblehead today at Gatchell's Park and at a home on Marblehead Neck.
Here's what you need to be ready for this week:
