Darien’s Topher Grace is among a star cast streaming into Greenwich this summer as filming for director Justin Zackham’s The Wedding gets under way.
Though Greenwich isn’t far down the road, its starring role in The Wedding may come as a disappointment to some Darien residents. In May, Grace indicated during an appearance on TBS’s Conan that the movie would be filmed in his hometown.
“I’m going to live there this summer. I’m gonna sleep in the bunk bed,” Grace joked.
But producer Clay Pecorin told the Greenwich Board of Selectmen on Thursday that plans to film some scenes in Darien had fallen through, and that “100 percent of the movie will be shot in Greenwich.”
Filming is set to wrap up by Aug. 22, Pecorin said, and the picture is expected to be released in 2012.
