BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) -- Hollywood hits Bristol for the day; two very popular people in the movies are filming a scene of an upcoming film at Lake Compounce.
The main attraction at Bristol's Lake Compounce, without a doubt, is Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas.
They're there filming a scene in an upcoming Robert Reiner film, And So It Goes.
"We had no idea we'd be this close to seeing him," said Shelton resident John Bavolacco. "We were just walking up the hill. We saw the cones, do not cross, took the cameras out, and he was about 100 feet in front of us."
In the film, Douglas is a self-centered real estate agent and Keaton plays his lovable neighbor. Douglas' life changes abruptly when his estranged son drops off a granddaughter he never knew. Keaton helps him learn how to take care of the child.
This will be the first time the two Hollywood celebrities have appeared on screen together.
One Plainville couple was hoping maybe, just maybe, they could appear with them.
"This is to me a once in a lifetime unique experience to see them actually set up all the equipment and the security keeping people back, and when they were checking their make-up Diane Keaton actually gave me a wave, so I think I'm gonna have to check the batteries in my pace maker," said Plainville resident Bill Hook.
The couple only imagine just how excited those are who happened to be in the right place at the right time, as scenes were being filmed on the Wave Singer and the Twister.
"What did you think when you saw Michael," asked News 8's Erin Logan.
"Unbelievable," said Plainville resident Nancy Hook. "True Hollywood star."
"Still looking good," asked Logan.
"Still looking good," Nancy said. "Very excited."
Whether or not they made it in the background, people who made it out there Monday say it was worth it just getting a glimpse of Hollywood. However, they'll have to wait a full year to see the celebrities on screen on their stomping grounds.
