Adam Sandler Filming Movie in Philadelphia, PA TODAY
Adam Sandler is filming part of his new movie in Center City, Philadelphia TODAY, according to CBS 3.
The movie is called "Hustle." It will be on Netflix. It's another sports movie for Sandler. IMDB says he plays a washed up basketball scout who discovers a phenomenal street ball player while overseas and sees this as his chance to get back into the NBA. Lol.
Queen Latifah, Robert Duvall, and Ben Foster are also in the movie.
Seems like the perfect part for Sandler. He's a great actor. My husband quoted his movie, The Wedding Singer" in our wedding vows. Yup, true story.

Joe, from Chris & The Crew lives in Manayunk and told me that Sandler just filmed parts of the movie in that area as well. He wasn't as excited as I am to have a big star in the area, complaining about how the shoot messed up parking. But, he is excited to see his neighborhood in the movie.
