RIDGEFIELD, Conn. (AP) - 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 to 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."

Bucari's Internet Movie Database page lists one completed directorial project, a TV pilot called "The Sacrificial Lamb." He has no listed telephone number and hasn't responded to online messages.
