Production heats up on Sandler's 'Grown Ups' set

Expect some fireworks this week on the set of Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups" flick at Centennial Grove located at 30 Martin St. in Essex.

In fact, a Loaded Gun Boston source says there will be a couple of night's worth of "oohs" and "aahs" in the works for the flick's Fourth of July scene slotted to film at the Chebacco Lake location this week.

As previously reported, crews gave a heads up last month warning of some post-holiday fireworks. The flyer indicates, "Please don't be alarmed if you see them at some point after the actual Fourth of July holiday is over, and be aware that fireworks may continue until late on some nights."

The film "Grown Ups" is a comedy about five high school friends who reunite with their families during the summer at a lake house after 30 years apart and stars Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Tim Meadows, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph.

Also, "Grown Ups" crews are building an elaborate set on the "neck" in Marblehead located at a private residence located at 100 Harbor Avenue. For the next few weeks, set designers will be busy constructing a facade outside of the French-Spanish colonial-style house for a scene scheduled to film on Thursday, Aug. 6 and Friday, Aug. 7. Tents will be set up at Riverhead Beach as well as the parking lot at Marblehead High School.

As previously reported in Loaded Gun, a source says "Grown Ups" will splish-splash its way Monday, Aug. 10 to Monday, Aug. 17 at Water Wizz of Cape Cod, a family-themed fun park located at 3031 Cranberry Hwy. in East Wareham.

This movie looks like it could be hysterical! Didn't know they were filming in Mass.
