BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. — Filmmakers are recreating the murder of a New Jersey African American family with supporting dramatizations being filmed in parts of Bergen County
The crime thriller called "Wisper" is being produced by New York City's Howard Nash. He is using a home on Euclid Road in Fort Lee for many of the scenes, as well as locations in Edgewater, Leonia and Ridgefield.
"We’ve acquired some footage from the time that it actually happened," he told Daily Voice. "We are filming supporting dramatizations to augment the footage that we found."
Nash does not know the details of the murder — like where it occurred or what year — but his film is bringing it up to date as if it happened in the last five years, he said.
He recently finished a film called "Tiger" starring Mickey Rourke and Janel Parish.
