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."

Oh, please, just what we need, something to encourage other kooks to be copycat killers.

Anything to make money.  Leave it alone already.  Leave these people alone and let them find some kind of new normal in their lives.  They have all suffered enough, they don't need to watch a movie on tv about it.

How stupid.  Like we need to see little kids massacred.  Anything for money.    Jerks
It's terrible that our insensitive greedy Hollywood actors and directors want to make a movie of this tragedy  so some other crazy idiot will learn from the stupid movie and  try the same thing.  And our muslim leader at the white house is only worried about gun control.  What has OBAMA done about Hollywood and the idiots making violent movies and games???  He has done NOTHING and will not do anything since he is only concerned about destroying our Constitution and getting political support from a bunch of actors in Hollywood.  He has already had a judge rule against him for not following the constitution, but what do we expect with a dictator in the white house.  The only thing OBAMA's gun control will do is the crazy people that no one wants to lock up anymore, will use hunting rifles and shotguns.  Then OBAMA will try to get rid of those weapons too.  OBAMA is an idiot being resistive in putting armed security in schools.  He makes sure his kids have armed security in their school and they don't have the same problems as an unarmed school.  The democratic party will never wake up and see the correct way to fix these issues is by having armed security in schools and the need to have lawyers wanting to prosecute  criminals with our existing laws instead of letting them go on lesser offenses.
