I was wondering if there is any way that as part of the replication if the IP address of the replicated VM could be changed?
All of these VMs are running the VMWare Tools in the OS.
I noticed there is an option to run a script after the replication has completed. Would there be a way I could create a script or some type of config I could do to change the IP on these Replicated VMs to match the IP scheme of my DR site?
I know the VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager has the ability to do this.

Did you consider setting up additional virtual NIC on your production VMs, and configuring IP settings on the correspondig network connection to one from DR site? This way, upon failover production connection will not be working of course, but this DR site connection will kick in automatically.

Therefore you need to re-enable after bringing up in a DR scenario - not overly difficult to do, however you may wish to script it if you have a number.
