Director plans movie related to Newtown shooting
RIDGEFIELD, Conn. (AP) -- A film director is traveling to Connecticut to prepare for a made-for-TV movie related to the deadly Newtown elementary school shooting.
Jonathan Bucari told News 12 Connecticut he planned to visit Ridgefield on Monday.
Ridgefield is 20 miles southwest of Newtown, where a gunman fatally shot his mother before killing 20 first-graders, six educators and himself in December.
WVIT-TV reports the Demian Productions film company says the film focuses on a 13-year-old boy with mental illness and a growing fear of his parents after the shooting.
Bucari says he picked Ridgefield because of its similar look to Newtown and because he didn't want to upset Newtown residents so soon after the killings.
Ridgefield schools superintendent Deborah Low says the timing of the film's crew visit is "poor."
