A new film project, entitled Big Time Adolescence, starring SNL’s Pete Davidson began filming in Syracuse, NY this week. The star arrived in town over the weekend with fiancée Ariana Grande and lucky local fans have already spotted the pair at a local mall and grocery store.
But, the couple won’t be around long as Ariana has a previous engagement in NYC this week and some social media reports state that Davidson will only spend about a total of a week or so shooting his part for the film.
Based on the latest set photos, it appears the movie is filming at a private residence this week but, local media reports much of the shoot will also take place at a local school that the movie’s production company, American High, has transformed into a movie studio. The company also plans to create a film school at the site.
This is what producers do! They put out fires! I like to light fires on day one just to see how @amypadge and @dubphelps can figure how to put them out! As my former boss, Joel Schumacher, used to say, “if it was easy, they would hire their relatives.” No offense @theiraunt #filmmaking #problemsolving
The school, located at 800 4th St in Liverpool, has also been featured in the company’s other films, Looks That Kill and Holly Slept Over.
Davidson will star alongside rapper-actor Machine Gun Kelly, Sydney Sweeney (who was amazing as Eden in The Handmaid’s Tale), Griffin Gluck, Thomas Barbusca, Oona Lawrence, and Jon Cryer in the movie which reportedly follows a 16-year-old virgin who is corrupted by his hero, an aimless college dropout.
