When and where did production take place for Murder Mystery?

The development of Murder Mystery began in 2010 and went through many changes before filming began. Numerous script changes and directors coming in and out of the project, at one stage, it looked like Murder Mystery was dead in the water.

After what must have felt like a hundredth script change, the script was eventually finalized, and Murder Mystery went into pre-production. In March 2018, it was announced Jennifer Anniston and Adam Sandler were cast (the pair’s first film together since Just Go With It), and by June, filming had begun.

Filming then took place over the next couple of months and concluded in August. Some of the locations used for filming are absolutely stunning, and we recommend you check out. The following locations were used in filming:

  • Montreal, Quebec, Canada
  • Lake Como, Italy
  • Santa Margherita Ligure, Genoa, Liguria, Italy
  • Milan, Lombardia, Italy,
  • Downtown, Los Angeles, California, USA
