The stars of The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates are reuniting for the first time in almost 10 years to shoot a movie on South African soil!

The film, Blended, is about a couple who run into each other at a family holiday resort with their kids from previous marriages in tow after having had a terrible first date. Most of the scenes will be shot at our very own “family resort”? Sun City.

Drew revealed last month she’d be heading to SA in “about six weeks” in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. But she and Adam had kept mum about exactly when we could expect them.

Luckily teen star Bella Thorne, who’s best known for her role as CeCe Jones in Disney Channel’s Shake it Up, is a social media junkie – as can only be expected of a fifteen-year-old – and has kept us entertained on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with pictures of the Sun City scenery. The starlet plays Drew’s daughter in the film.

"The sun always rises," Bella comments with a beautiful pic of the sun rising over The Palace. Bella seems to be falling in love with SA - earlier today she tweeted: "i can't believe i'm here....so thankful for this opportunity. #dreamlocation #nicepeople #grateful."

Are you at Sun City? Sneak a snap of Drew and the gang and send it to us!
