Preproduction

Adam Sandler Film Shooting In Austin

Screen TexasAdam Sandler / Jason Reitman Film Shooting in Austin: We have just gotten word that preproduction has started on Adam Sandler’s new film called Men, Women, and Children.

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.

The film will be nothing like Sandler’s usual silly, comedy-driven works. Instead Men, Women, and Children is a little more “adult-themed” focusing on the sexual pressures of teens and their parents and is expected to be shocking & salacious. Local casting for real high schoolers to fill the lead teen roles has already begun and will continue through early November.

DonJon SMThe new romcom Don Jon is unlike any other comedy you’ll see this year. The multi-talented Joseph Gordon-Levitt not only stars in the movie but serves as its writer and director. The up-tempo comedy centers around Gordon-Levitt as Don Jon, a young man is addicted to pornography. He soon meets Barbara (played by Scarlett Johansson), a young woman who is addicted to romance movies, and their addictions and preconceived views create a big obstacle in their budding romance. Don Jon also features Julianne Moore and Tony Danza, and the movie was shot all around Los Angeles, with additional scenes in New Jersey and New York. The entire production was shot with film stock at the director’s request to give it a rich, film look.
