The Murder Mystery filming will take place in the harbour of Santa Margherita Ligure (Genoa) and in the Lake Como Area of Italy.
Adam Sandler says about filming in Italy for the first time: “I love Italy. I was here with my wife a year ago and loved it so much I brought the kids with me this time and an entire movie crew… great food, great people, great family life.”
