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.

Fitzgerald appeared before the Board of Selectmen at Wednesday night to present the updated filming schedule below.

Love the information you provide thru the Patch, however, it's frustrating because I can never print the information out-all I get is a printout of the ads that accompany the articles. Any advice?

Hi Cody: Taylor Lautner is playing a fraternity brother in a scene we expect will be shot in Swampscott. I don't think it will be shot there this week, though.
