Happy Madison Productions in association with Gulfstream Pictures and Kiki Tree Productions are now filming the romantic comedy feature film "Blended", and the extras casting director has sent out a casting call for people who are interested in working as fully paid background performers. The production is in need of all ages and types. Shooting is taking place through August 16, 2013 in the Lake Lanier/Buford area northeast of Atlanta, GA.

"Blended" centers on recently divorced mother of two boys, Lauren Reynolds, and widowed father of three girls, Jim Friedman, who have a disastrous blind date that puts them off dating for the foreseeable future. However, when the two purchase a discount "Familymoon" vacation from Lauren's best friend and business partner, Jen, they wind up at an African resort with their kids in tow. Initially acrimonious, their relationship skews, gradually and irresistibly, towards romance.

Starring in "Blended" is Golden Globe Award nominee Adam Sandler playing the role of Jim Friedman. This is Sandler's first acting role since playing Lenny Feder in the currently playing "Grown Ups 2". Also starring is Golden Globe Award winner Drew Barrymore in the role of Lauren Reynolds. Barrymore most recently starred in the 2012 Universal Pictures feature film "Big Miracle". Bella Thorne, Emma Fuhrmann, and Alyvia Alyn Lind are playing Sandler's daughters, while Kyle Silverstein and Braxton Beckham portray Drew Barrymore's sons. Other cast members include Terry Crews, Chelsea Handler, and Kevin Nealon.

Frequent Adam Sandler film collaborator Frank Coraci will direct "Blended" from an original screenplay written by Primetime Emmy Award nominee Ivan Menchell and Clare Sera. Coraci previously directed the Adam Sandler films "The Wedding Singer," "The Waterboy," and "Click". Sandler and Jack Giarraputo will produce for Happy Madison. Mike Karz will also produce. Executive producers are Barry Bernardi and Gulfstream Pictures EVP Josie Rosen. Warner Bros. will release "Blended" on May 23, 2014.
