Sandy Hook Movie Trying To Film In Newtown!

Ugh. We don't even know what to say about this.

Filmmaker Jonathan Bucari is making a movie using the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings as a backdrop- and he's filming it on the outskirts of Newtown!

We understand that school shootings are fresh on everyone's mind, and that someone might be inspired to tell a personal story.

But you know whose mind it's still super fresh on? And raw? And tender? The people of Newtown. Rudy Marconi, First Selectman of neighboring Ridgefield, says:

"I will do everything in my power to prevent this… Mr. Bucari is going to have to find another location."

What exactly is this movie about anyway? The film's producer says:

"Illness is a story about the tragic fate of Benjamin, a thirteen-year-old boy with a terrible mental illness, and the ever-growing fear of his parents after they learn about the shooting in Newtown in December 2012."

If you must tell a story involving a school shooting, can't you at least fictionalize it? Use a fake name of a fake town? Not real kids who really died?

This just feels too much like trying to capitalize on a tragedy.

    nothing wrong with capturing real events that happen in films and documentaries. This has been done always throughout history. Ridiculous pretending things didnt happen. As long as its done respectfully I see no harm. Its not cashing in its about capturing a mood and a time in history. In decades to come it may be invaluable as a document of the event. Life goes on no matter what tragedies occur.

    Too fucking soon! Stop making movies about real news stories! Disrespectful to all the families! We know what fucking happened, we don't need some shit actor/ actresses playing dress up to mime it for us. We can handle reading a newspaper thanks!

    This is fucking messed up. It has only been a month and a half. Really.

    It hasn’t even been a whole two months and they are already trying to put together a movie on mental illnesses with the mention of the Sandy Hook tragedy. People, can we let the families be at peace? Of course not, why would they? All they are worried about is making money and not worrying about what they are doing or putting the families through.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the families and communities impacted by this horrible… attack.

    This movie is wrong on so many levels.
