While doing errands today I found myself surprised to be stuck in traffic on the Rt. 25 South Expressway. Three lanes were closed, with all traffic crammed into one lane. At the end of it all, the culprit was clearly visible, a movie was being filmed.
One scene was a string of cars lined up bumper to bumper right at the beginning of an exit’s off-ramp (Daniel’s Farm Road exit). Another scene was in a different section where cars, trucks and police cars were parked.
Highway signs were posted today and had today’s date and stated that certain parts of the road would be closed.
Now that I’m home I checked online and read this Connecticut Post article written by Tony Spinelli which talks about the movie “For One More Day” as going to be filmed at night on Thursday and Friday. However today is Wednesday and filming was being shot in the morning and afternoon, so there is a bit of a discrepancy. The made for teleivison film is based on the book by Mitch Albom. The article states a main character in the movie is Michael Imperioli who played Christopher Moltisanti in “The Soprano’s”.
I also found this article which describes the plot and tells that this is one of the movies in the "Oprah Winfrey Presents" series.
This morning had heavy rainstorms with lightning and thunder. Now the rain is tapering off and it looks like the sun is going to come out. I have no clue how filmmakers can plan and work on tight schedules around the quickly changing New England weather.
