Channel24 has revealed that Hollywood star and new mom Drew Barrymore will be heading to our shores to film her new movie. Drew will also be travelling with her seven- month-old daughter Olive.

According to Channel24 the actress is set to spend a period of three months in Sun City to shoot a new romantic comedy (which is currently untitled) alongside her co-star Adam Sandler. Adam and Drew acted together in movies like Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. Fans can expect the 38-year-old actress to land in South Africa within the next six weeks and, even though rumour has it she’ll only stay for three months, Drew has apparently insisted that she’ll stay until all her scenes have “been shot perfectly”.

Unfortunately for all you Adam Sandler fans there has been no word of him joining Drew in SA.

Drew is apparently quite excited about the movie and has revealed in a number of interviews that the project is something her and Adam have been speaking about for quite a while.

“It was all that Adam and I were talking about.  Both of us bring out the best in each other.”

Barrymore also revealed a snippet of the storyline which focuses on a couple who experience disastrous first dates while at a holiday resort.

If you happen to be in Sun City in the next six weeks make sure you grab a couple of pictures of Drew along the way!
