May 11, 2012


If you are in Marblehead or Swampscott, Mass.  be on the look out for the filming of "Grown ups 2".  The film is the sequel to Adam Sandlers film, which came out in 2010.  The film will star Chris Rock, David Spade, Taylor Lautner, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, David Henrie, and Shaquille O’Neal.

"According to location scouts for the Columbia Pictures film, at least half of the sequel will be shot in Marblehead, and 25 percent in Swampscott. The rest of the film will be shot on the North Shore. Filming will run through Aug. 17. In Marblehead, filming locations include Old Town, downtown, the town’s middle school, and at a house in Marblehead Neck. In Swampscott, producers are planning to spend four days filming inside the middle school in late May and June. Also scenes are planned at the commuter rail station on Railroad Avenue that will probably include former NBA All-Star O’Neal, who is playing a police officer in the film."


Update from

DAY ONE: Thursday, May 24

Fitzgerald said 90 percent of the first day of local filming will take place inside of a home on Vassar Road, with some shooting to take place on the front porch.

On that day, the majority of the company's trailers and equipment trucks will be parked at the Devereux Beach parking lot, Fitzgerald said.

A tent will be erected in the backyard of a home on Buchanan Road, which will allow producers to serve the cast and crew lunch without having to shuttle them back and forth from Devereux Beach.

Street Closure Schedule:

  • From 5 p.m. on May 23 to 9 p.m. on May 24, Vassar Road between Orchard Street and Summer Road will be closed as needed for filming. No parking will be allowed on the southeast side of Atlantic Avenue between Locust Street and Greystone Road. No parking on both sides of Vassar Road in its entirety and no parking on both sides of Gallison Avenue.

DAY TWO: Tuesday, May 29:

You can expect a crowd of town residents to try their best to catch a glimpse of this "high school cheerleader car wash scene," which Fitzgerald said will be shot in the 12 public parking spots at the end of Rockaway Street – located across the street from the Marblehead Museum and adjacent to the Jeremiah Lee Mansion

Fitzgerald said Columbia Pictures will keep most of their equipment and trailers at the Old North Church parking lot and the crew will be eating their lunch at the Masonic Hall on Pleasant Street. 

When board member Judie Jacobi voiced some concern regarding what exactly would be going on during this "cheerleader fundraiser car wash," Fitzgerald assured her that "nothing terrible" would be going on, which drew a laugh from those in attendance.

Street Closure Schedule:

  • From 5 p.m. on Monday May 28 to 9 p.m. on Friday June 1, no parking tow zone signs will be posted on Rockaway Street and on parts of Washington Street and Rockaway Street to Darling Street will be closed off as needed for filming. The area connecting Pleasant Street to State Street will also be closed for filming. No parking will be allowed around the Old Town House on both sides and parts of Hooper Street may be shut down.

DAY THREE: Wednesday, May 30

This scene, expected to depict a celebrity picking up their kids at school, will be shot at Marblehead Veterans Middle School while school is still in session.

Fitzgerald said the majority of equipment will be parked in the Devereux Beach parking lot and at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church, where "extras processing" will take place and a catered lunch will be served.

Shooting is planned for a small parking area on school property and the celebrities involved in the scene may create an environment that would be "a bad day for a pop quiz," Fitzgerald joked.

Street Closure Schedule:

  • From 5 p.m. on Tuesday May 29 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday May 30, no parking tow zone signs will be posted on the northwest side of Pleasant Street from Prospect Street to Prince Street.

Fitzgerald is expected to return to Abbot Hall on May 30 to provide the Board of Selectmen with another filming update.
