The gang from "Grown Ups" finally got going today, filming scenes at Pilgrim Church and the Old Burial Ground in Southborough. The movie, directed by Dennis Dugan, stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Colin Quinn. The story centers on a bunch of dudes, and their respective spouses, who return home for July 4th after a 30-year absence. (The film's female leads include Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, and Maya Rudolph.) Written by Sandler and "Joe Dirt" scribe Fred Wolf, "Grown Ups" will be shooting mostly in Essex for the next two months. Yesterday, cast members were dressed in dark suits for a funeral scene.
