Late night talk show host David Letterman’s production company, Worldwide Pants Incorporated is getting ready to shoot scenes for its new feature film at a high school in Connecticut, according to the Valley Independent Sentinel.
Tentatively titled The Greatest Movie Ever Made, the independent film is being directed by Jon Beckerman and executive producer of “The Late Show with David Letterman” Rob Burnett.
Bill Pullman, of Independence Day and Casper fame, is starring in the comedy, which is also the company’s first feature film venture.
Film crews have already shot scenes at the Leo F. Ryan Sports Complex in Derby on June 14th and 15th, and are scheduled to shoot inside Derby High School on June 28th and 29th. Crews are also currently scouting areas in Ansonia and Shelton. The Derby Greenway trail may also be used for shooting scenes.
The film follows the story of five high school seniors from a town called Buckstown, N.Y. Derby High will be set as Buckstown High School for the filming.
The Derby Board of Aldermen and the school district granted permission to World Wide Pants for filming before the project began. The Board of Education reportedly asked the filmmakers if students could be allowed to meet people involved with the project so students can use the opportunity as a learning experience to gain insight into the filmmaking process.
