Follow the love: It seems the love between Kevin James and Adam
Sandler continues
to grow, but it isn't just our liberal marriage laws that
bring the Chuck and Larry stars back to Massachusetts.

Adam Sandler plans homecoming for another Boston flick. "Paul Blart: Mall
Cop" star Kevin James spilled about a return trip to the Hub with an
upcoming made-in-Boston film slotted for production?

New England native Adam Sandler and his "Happy Madison Productions"
crew including James, David Spade and Chris Rock are slotted to begin
filming a "Big Chill" style comedy , but with a lot of laughs, scheduled for
66 days kicking off in May. The show is tentatively called "Lakeside."

According to the Globe, Sandler is working on the still-untitled flick
centering around a group of guys who return to their hometown.

Other names being thrown out include Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider and
Norm MacDonald.

James says Massachusetts' tax incentives are enough to bring the
funnyman back for more.

"Massachusetts has fantastic tax breaks but more than that, I tell you,
it's got the great East Coast feel and the people are great. There's a
chance that I'm going to shoot my next movie and the one after that
there so I think we're going to do two more [in Boston]," James tells

"Paul Blart: Mall Cop" was filmed on location at the Burlington Mall with
additional scenes shot on Centre Street in West Roxbury, the Boston
Harbor Islands and South Shore Plaza in Braintree.

Will Paul Blart make a Boston return?
The made-in-Boston film "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," riding high after a
snagging the top slot at the box office a two weeks in a row, may make a
return trip for a sequel.

James has several potential projects in the works including another
man-in-uniform flick called "Zookeeper" and a project with "Paul Blart"
co-producer and New England native Adam Sandler.

To add more to his plate, Doug Belgrad, the Sony production executive
who developed the comedy with James, tells the Los Angeles Times that
there may be a "Paul Blart" sequel in the works.

"Happy Madison historically has been very reluctant to do sequels,"
Belgrad spills. "But we believe there is an opportunity to make another
'Paul Blart' movie."
