Route 8 closes for DiCaprio, Winslet movie filming

The stars from Titanic are making a splash in Beacon Falls with filming for their new movie, but it will mean detours for drivers tonight on Route 8.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are filming scenes for their upcoming movie Revolutionary Road.

The movie is based on the novel by Richard Yates. It looks at “a young couple living in a Connecticut suburb during the mid-1950s (struggling) to come to terms with their personal problems while trying to raise their two children”, according to a plot outline on IMDB.com.

There will be a bit of a traffic detour because of shooting. State police say Route 8 between Exits 23 and 24 will be closed from 7:00 p.m. tonight until 5:00 a.m. Friday.
