RIDGEFIELD - A Hollywood director is in Ridgefield today preparing to shoot a made-for-TV movie about the Newtown massacre.

Film director Jonathan Bucari says he selected Ridgefield as the location for his new movie about the Netwown shooting because it has the same look and feel as Newtown, and he didn't want to invade Newtown so soon after the tragedy.

The movie is scheduled to be released at film festivals worldwide in May.
