“I Hate You, Dad,’’ the Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg comedy that’s filming in Osterville, has a new name: “Donny’s Boy.’’ We got word about the title change yesterday, and we have to admit, “Donny’s Boy’’ is a bit catchier (and less confrontational) than “I Hate You, Dad.’’ We assume that the new title means that Sandler’s character will be named Donny. The New Hampshire-bred actor is set to play Samberg’s grouchy father in the film, which costars Leighton Meester, Vanilla Ice, and Susan Sarandon. This isn’t the first Boston movie that’s had a big name change. “Knight & Day,’’ the blockbuster starring Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise, was called “Wichita’’ and “Trouble Man’’ before director James Mangold settled on its title.
