A Director says he's traveling to Connecticut to prepare for a TV movie related to the Newtown school shooting.
Jonathan Bucari told News 12 Connecticut he planned ot visit Ridgefield on Monday. Ridgefield is 20 miles southwest of Newtown, where a gunman fatally shot 20 first graders, six educators and himself in December.
WVIT-TV reports Bucari's film company says the film focuses on a 13-year-old boy with mental illness and a fear of his parents after the shooting.
Bucari says he picked Ridgefield because it looks like Newtown and he didn't want to upset Newtown residents so soon after the killings.
Ridgefield schools superintendent Deborah Low says the timing is poor.
I do not think this is good idea at all! It is way too soon to do a movie based off the shooting. I think he should wait AT LEAST a year! He should be a little more considerate of the families who are still grieving!
