Summer's fast approaching, which means it's time for Adam Sandler to plan his next
family vacation goofy summer-themed movie project.
Sandler has spent the past three summers filming Grown Ups, That's My Boy, and Grown Ups 2 in New England with his family and friends. But, this year he's trying something new and bringing the gang (which includes his wife, kids, and some combination of David Spade, Nick Swardson, Milo Ventimiglia, Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Andy Samberg, or Chris Rock) to Sun City, South Africa.
Drew Barrymore can officially add another job to her resume this weekend: Director. The actress is making her directorial debut in Whip It, about a young woman (played by Ellen Page) who finds her life's passion when she joins a local roller derby team. The movie is set in Texas but was filmed entirely in Michigan last year. Take a look at where to stay, where to eat and what to do in Michigan this fall to get into the true spirit of Whip It.
Where to Stay:
The Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center is currently offering a weekend deal that includes a $100 Bonus Bucks coupon good toward any future two-night stay and $50 off a Hertz rental if you spend a Friday or Saturday night at the hotel this fall. Rates start around $166 a night, use the promo code V12 when booking online to get the deal.
On-again, off-again real life couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long are on again, playing a couple trying to survive a long distance relationship in the upcoming comedy, Going The Distance. Could this be a case of art imitating life? In the movie, Drew is an older-than-usual intern at the fictional newspaper, The New York Sentinelthis already reminds us of Never Been Kissed.
To catch the duo in action, tonight they'll be filming at the Associated Press' real-life headquarters at 450 W 33rd Street in New York City, which will serve as the Sentinel's office space. The AP's headquarters also just happen to be about a block away from the newly renovated New Yorker Hotel, once known for being infested with bed bugs (and college students). The New Yorker however recently completed the full renovation of their 912 rooms, and the new Art Deco-inspired decor includes flat panel HDTVs with free HBO and Pay-Per-View Movies, and free Wi-Fi.
Lights, Camera... Michigan? That's right, thanks to a new incentives program from the Michigan Film Office, the state is experiencing a boom in filming with more than 60 movies on the shooting schedule for this year alone, up from just three last year. Looks like Michigan might just be Hollywood Midwest.
Spotted: A certain Upper East Sider going downtown to get lucky. Yup, that's Ed Westwick locked in an embrace with actress Drew Barrymore at a recent Kings of Leon concert at Webster Hall in New York.
While the Southern-fried band doesn't seem like the kind of music a Bass would really be able to rock out to, we're still hoping this scene is some kind of cameo. Would Chuck, force of destruction as he is, really go the cougar route right after his buddy Nate?
Adding to the mystery is the fact that Barrymore actually was spotted with Chace Crawford at last week's SNL afterparty. Sharing is for Brooklyn, boys!

Even unlimited Apple products and a job that forces you to make out with Britney Spears circa "I'm Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman" can't cushion the blow from a Hollywood breakup.
Justin Long is sulking in a Detroit suburb on the set of his next movie "Youth in Revolt," trying to drink away his breakup from Drew Barrymore, who herself is shooting the father-daughter bonding movie "Everybody's Fine" in Connecticut. Thanksgiving with his family, long walks in the hills and co-starring in the ensemble comedy "He's Just Not That Into You" (out in February) couldn't keep the mismatched couple together.
Long locked lips with Spears in the 2002 movie "Crossroads," a movie not officially recommended by Jaunted.
Drew Barrymore presented an award to the cast of Juno at the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Saturday. Did you make it this year? Halle Berry took her pregnant self there to receive an award for "Things We Lost in the Fire." Zac Efron hit the red carpet along with "High School Musical" costar and possible girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, before joining his "Hairspray" costars for a sing-along screening of the movie musical.
Juno, this year's Little Indie That Could about a Minneapolis teen's unplanned pregnancy, finished third at the box office this weekend and picked up three Golden Globe nominations. Don't worry, we'll still cover next week's Golden Globes ceremony even if the stars don't attend--and even though our invite got lost in the mail.
The paparazzi videography boom isn't going away anytime soon. That's happy news, we guess, for us, but not so much for celebrity travelers. Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, the airport was a place where a lesser celebrity might be left alone and allowed to look a bit haggard. Not anymore, and now they'll really catch you in action.
Not that Cameron and Drew look bad here, but they were probably looking forward to a short flight anyway. The two were recently snapped and recorded at LAX checking in at the American Eagle counter and making their way through security. As you can see, they are true travelers of the people, and even stopped to sign autographs and pet puppies. Does this mean AAdvantage is their frequent flyer program of choice?

Drew Barrymore was in London this weekend promoting her movie Music and Lyrics with Hugh Grant. The newly single actress just made an appearance at The Ivy, a smart choice given her sometimes-vegetarian ways. The restaurant has plenty of vegetarian and vegan options.
More interesting than the chow, however, is the recent revelation that Drew apparently likes to run around naked in Ireland. She told Parade magazine: "I'll drive in Ireland and park my car and run out into the field and rip all my clothes off and just run in the wheat fields naked." Looks like Ryanair just sold a boatload of tickets to the poor paparazzi.

When Hollywood packs up their dogs, tattoos and piercings and goes hiking they usually stick close to home.
Runyon Canyon offers a three mile hike ideal for "light hikers" that offers a range of sights including flora, fauna, architecture, and possibly a Federline, or in this case a Barrymore, though we can't be sure she is on the Runyon Canyon trail.
To stave off dehydration and boredom, the powers that be have installed a water fountain at the trail head gate and free yoga classes (from time to time) along the trail. Huntington Hartford's old estate and Inspiration Point are also popular stops along the trail.
Aside from the natural sites spotting a celebrity in the wild of the Hollywood Hills is the Californian Safari some are looking for.
To access the trail try parking near Fuller Ave (close to the dead end) and enter through a gate labeled "The Pines".
