Adam Sandler Film Shooting In Austin

The flick is being directed by Jason Reitman (Up In The Air, Juno, Young Adult) and is set to start shooting in Austin in early December. Sandler is starring in the film, based on the novel by Chad Kultgen, and is being joined by Jennifer Garner, and Rosemary DeWitt.

Local casting for real high schoolers to fill the lead teen roles has already begun and will continue through early November.
