Report: 'Jersey Shore' Cast to Film Season Four in Italy
By PopEater Staff Posted Jan 25th 2011 12:00PM
As 'Jersey Shore' prepares to film its fourth season, the cast is reportedly getting booted from the U.S. and will bring their fist pumps and drunken antics to Italy. Sources connected to the show told TMZ that MTV has been scouting locations in Italy.
Producers started lining up visas for the cast and crew two months ago, but filming in Italy is contingent on the government letting them into the country to film. The show's executives are even in talks with cast member Vinny Guadagnino's Italian relatives for a few episodes, so they can host an authentic dinner for the 'Shore' stars.
This won't be the first time the cast left Seaside Heights. Last season, the cast got down and dirty in Miami.
The move will likely stir controversy, as the show deals heavily with Italian-American stereotypes. When 'Jersey Shore' debuted, one Italian-American group protested the show as portraying Italian-Americans in a negative way, but the controversy died down.
Hollywood Life reported early this month that the new season will begin filming this May.
