WESTPORT, Conn. A film starring Melanie Lynskey of "Two and a Half Men" and Blythe Danner of "Meet the Parents" is seeking a Planning and Zoning permit to film at a home on Driftwood Point Road in the Saugatuck Shores area of Westport.
"Hello, I Must Be Going" was written by Sarah Koskoff, daughter of homeowners Michael and Roz Koskoff, according to a document submitted to the Planning and Zoning Department. It was written to take place at the home.
The document describes the film as "a comedy about a divorced, demoralized and soon-to-be 40-year-old woman whose life is upended when she goes to live at her parents' house." Todd Louiso will direct the film, which is being produced by Mary Jane Skalski and Hans Ritter.
Filming is tentatively scheduled for Aug. 8-13, Aug. 15-20 and Aug. 22-23. All shooting will take place on the property and no cranes, generators or tents will be set up, the file says. Some lights, however, will be placed on the property.
Film company representatives are set to receive the permit on Thursday, a secretary in the Planning and Zoning office said. On Monday, the Administrative Review Committee approved an application which requested special permission to film exterior shots up to 1 a.m. on certain dates.
The film company is also expected to apply for permits to film at several other locations, including the train station, 1300 Post Road E. and Main Street, the Planning and Zoning secretary added.
When contacted by phone Wednesday, Susan Leber, the film's line producer, asked that the home's exact address, or filming times, not be disclosed for security reasons.
