Hotel Transylvania’ is on its way to the top spot at the domestic box office with an estimated $33 million-$35 million weekend, according to early estimates, reports Variety. ‘Hotel Transylvania’ would mark the ninth No. 1 debut for Sandler and could become the highest-opening ever for Sony Pictures Animation. ‘The Smurfs’ (2011) holds the current benchmark for the studio, with $35.6 million.
The reason David Henrie’s character Justin won’t be in the special is because he will be filming a movie, and the conflicting schedules were too difficult to rework, reports Zap2it. Selena is getting a new love interest! Producers are currently casting for Dominic, a hot Italian guy, who is also a wizard, and encounters Alex as she tries to prove herself as a wizard.
Described as ‘handsome and mysterious,’ Dominic is ‘heartthrob, model good looking.’ ‘Did we mention that he should be really, really, handsome?’ the casting directors add. While Dominic seems sweet, he’s got anther side to him that Alex might not particularly like. They’re also casting the major comedic role of Carmela, Jerry’s (Deluise) cousin from Italy. The actress cast will hopefully be fluent in Italian. They’re filming in California, not Tuscany.
