Glen Cove gets celebrity sightings as movie films nearby

August 12, 2017 by  

Residents of Glen Cove have been catching glimpses of actors like Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, and Chris Rock in the area.

The actors are filming ‘The Week Of’, a Netflix movie, at John Maccarone Memorial Stadium. Previously, the actors were seen eating at a Floral Park restaurant while enjoying a filming break.

During one break, the Parks & Rec team for the city was able to join Reggie Spinello, Glen Cove mayor, in greeting the actors and the crew. They got to meet Sandler in particular. Spinello said on Facebook that he had an opportunity to thank Sandler for selecting the city to film the movie. He also expressed his gratitude to the 50-year-old actor patronizing local businesses during his time in the city. He told followers that Sandler thanked Glen Cove residents for being pleasant during his visit to their city, and said it had been great working with the parks team.

Set to be released in 2018, ‘The Week Of’ follows the parents of an engaged couple during the week in which that couple is to be married. To make the filming community look like the appropriate town in which the movie is set, companies often use banner printing or other printed items.

This is the fourth movie completed under Sandler’s agreement with the streaming media company, the others are ‘Sandy Wexler’, ‘The Do-Over’, and ‘The Ridiculous 6’
