Movie Shoot Begins Monday in Norwalk

NORWALK, Conn. – A certain property on Wilson Avenue is beginning to look like a movie set — and with good reason. "Great Hope Springs" will begin shooting there Monday.

The movie stars Connecticut resident Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell, according to Empire Online . Carell plays a marriage counselor trying to help Streep and Jones in the comedy.

A Norwalk resident noticed Tuesday that trailers were being set up along the waterfront behind 300-310 Wilson Ave., a huge warehouse formerly used by ShowMotion, Inc . He saw equipment being carried in and recognized it as movie equipment.

Norwalk Police Lt. Paul Resnick, who said he serves as Norwalk's liaison to the film industry when they are in town, confirmed that "Great Hope Springs" will begin shooting at the spot Monday. Workers, who said they were from New York, gave the same information, adding that sets were being built inside the warehouse.
