The comedy starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg that filmed around Massachusetts last year has a new name. The film, which started out as “I Hate You, Dad’’ and was renamed “Donny’s Boy,’’ is now “That’s My Boy,’’ according to a new, not-suitable-for-work trailer that has surfaced online. The movie, about a guy who reconnects with his immature father, will be released June 15 - just in time for Father’s Day - and also stars Leighton Meester, Vanilla Ice, and Susan Sarandon. Don’t confuse it with the 1951 movie, “That’s My Boy,’’ which starred Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis; this is not a remake of that picture. One of the major filming locations of this new “That’s My Boy’’ was the Cabaret Lounge in Peabody, which was turned into a fictional strip club called Bacon & Legs. Based on the trailer, that club gets a lot of screen time. Samberg recently spoke to MTV about the film and said, “It’s certainly classic Sandler. He’s doing a Boston accent the whole movie; he’s off the rails, cursing every other word. We were dying the whole time we were shooting.’’
