Jennifer Aniston and co-star Adam Sandler were spotted together shooting a scene for their upcoming mystery-comedy film, 'Murder Mystery.' The filming is scheduled to take place in Lake Como in Lombardo, Northern Italy, but the 49-year-old 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' star was spotted alongside Sandler at a marketplace in Milan this past Monday. They were reportedly shooting a scene that involved a disagreement between the pair, but what caught the eye was Aniston's floral dress.
According to the Daily Mail, she was spotted sporting a white mini-dress with a pleated hemline that drew attention to the tanned and toned pins while she had tied up her honey-blonde hair in a sleek ponytail. She was also seen carrying a leather tote bag in hand, with the 51-year-old Sandler rocking a full mustache and aviators. His pale blue Hawaiian shirt, stone grey shorts, and blue plimsolls completed his look and gave him a very touristy appearance.
Incredibile come a volte la vita possa regalarti certe opportunità... in questi 3 anni ho avuto la fortuna e soprattutto l’impegno di partecipare, anche se la maggior parte delle volte come semplice figurazione, a svariati set cinematografici. Fiction, film, spot pubblicitari, di tutto, ma quasi sempre “ piccole cose “. Trovarsi a lavorare in un set americano, con Jennifer Aniston e Adam Sandler è qualcosa che mi lascia senza parole. Due ottimi attori che ho sempre ammirato, soprattutto da bambino, ed oggi affianco a loro, di persona, a lavorarci assieme...impensabile fino a poco tempo fa. Rimarrà il ricordo indelebile di questa grande esperienza, ma posso dire che con questo “ traguardo “ ho messo la ciliegina sulla torta a questo lavoro passeggero. #adamsandler #jenniferaniston #milan #set #murdermystery #film #netflix #incoming
Besides Aniston and Sandler, the feature also stars the likes of Luke Evans, Gemma Arterton, David Walliams, Erik Griffin, and several more. An official description for the feature reads, "An NYC cop finally takes his wife on a long-promised European trip. A chance meeting on a flight with a mysterious man gets them invited to an intimate family gathering on the superyacht of an elderly billionaire. When the wealthy man is murdered, they become the prime suspects."
Soon after rumors went around suggesting that Charlize Theron or Emily Blunt are in talks to take up the female lead, it was announced (in March) that Jennifer Aniston had been cast opposite Adam Sandles. Kyle Newacheck, best known as one of the creators of Comedy Central's 'Workaholics,' will be directing a script penned by James Vanderbilt ('Zodiac,' 'White House Down,' 'The Amazing Spider-Man').
Besides locations in Italy such as Santa Margherita Ligure, Lake Como, and Milan, 'Murder Mystery' will also be filmed in Montréal, Canada. The producers will hope that Aniston and Sandler can recreate their chemistry from 2011 romantic comedy 'Just Go With It.' While the film received negative reviews from critics and earned Sandler a Golden Raspberry for Worst Actor, it proved to be a commercial success and grossed $215 million on an $80 million budget.
The actress is also set to appear in 'Dumplin' later this year. The musical comedy film will be directed by Anne Fletcher ('Step Up', '27 Dresses', 'The Proposal') and written by Kristin Hahn and will see the 49-year-old actress star alongside Danielle Macdonald. Meanwhile, Sandler most recently lent his voice to 'Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation', which proved to be a huge commercial success and grossed over $461 million on an $80 million budget.
