Scouts for the new Adam Sandler flick "Lake House," plan to shoot a scene in the coming months with co-stars Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade at the upscale Japanese-fusion restaurant, O Ya, located at 9 East Street in Boston's Leather District.
As previously reported in Loaded Gun, Sandler's former “SNL” cohorts as well as “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” funnyman James are slotted for a 66-day film shoot beginning in May centering around a group of five guys who return to their hometown after 30-years apart for a Fourth of July holiday weekend. Think a “Big Chill”-style comedy … but with a lot of laughs.
Pre-production on the flick is heating up. In fact, nearby Essex entered into an agreement on Monday, March 16 to host Sandler and crew at the town’s Centennial Grove this summer.
The made-in-Boston film is also casting a few key roles through Roger Mussenden & Jeremy Rich Casting in California, including:
WOMAN: (70s to 90s) Sassy, snippy battle-ax of a woman. She is old enough to know what she wants, when she wants it, and doesn’t care how she says it. PLEASE SUBMIT AFRICAN-AMERICAN.
BECKY: (age 5) TWINS -- Adam Sandler’s youngest daughter. She is a bundle of love and optimism. Please submit twin Latino girls.
BEAN: (age 4) TWINS -- Kevin James’ youngest son. Please submit twin boys.
Interested? Submit pictures and resumes to: Roger Mussenden & Jeremy Rich Casting, Sony Studios, 10202 W. Washington Blvd. David Lean Bldg., Suite 219, Culver City, CA 90232.
