NEW YORK — “Sandy Holes” is set to open in theaters March 16.
The film follows the story of a young boy who is abducted and later found in a Sandy Hook elementary school by his father and his mother.
It will be directed by Robert Zemeckis, who has helmed “Sideways” and “Gone Girl.”
A film crew of about 50 will travel to Newtown to film the film.
The crew will include director Robert Zemckis.
The production, produced by Warner Bros., is set in a fictional Connecticut town where a 12-year-old boy is murdered by his mother’s boyfriend and the police investigate.
Zemcks will serve as producer.
The Newtown shooting was the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
The shooting was initially called a suicide, but authorities later said it was a shooting by a gunman.
