As we reported earlier this month, Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton were filming a new movie, “And So It Goes,” in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport.
Now, the actors, along with a production crew from Castlerock Entertainment, are setting up shop at different locations throughout Fairfield County, including private residences and businesses in Greenwich, Stamford and Fairfield.
“It’s been great,” Frank Trotta, location scout for Castlerock Entertainment, said in a phone interview Monday. “We’ve developed a lot of close relationships with people in the community. Everyone has been very positive.”
Filming has been taking place at a duplex at the end of Ferris Street in Bridgeport since early June, with future shoots planned across the Park City. Additional shoots have taken place at Nicholas H. Fingelly Real Estate in the Southport section of Fairfield and a private residence in Greenwich. Filming is also planned at a restaurant in Stamford.
Trotta, who previously worked on production of “The Big C” in Greenwich, said that Bridgeport offers “a huge spectrum of neighborhoods and demographics,” making it a “great place” to film a movie.
“I think it’s really helped us to make this movie because we’ve been able to find all sorts of locations – higher end locations, but also urban and suburban spots,” he said. “We’ve been able to find everything.”
Directed by Rob Reiner, the romantic comedy tells the story of an ego-centric man (played by Douglas) whose life is turned upside-down when he’s introduced to the granddaughter he didn’t know he had,” according to IMDB. Keaton plays his neighbor.
Filming for “And So It Goes” is slated to wrap up on July 12.
