The South by Southwest Festival hosts the premiere of a Tybee-filmed movie

The South by Southwest Festival announced its film line-up for 2018 with headline movies including “Isle of Dogs” and “A Quiet Place,” but another of the narrative additions was “Galveston,” the new movie from writer/director Melanie Laurent.

The film, which stars Elle Fanning, Ben Foster and Beau Bridges, filmed in Savannah and Tybee Island last year. The movie is based on “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzollatto’s novel of the same name.

The plot for the film is as follows, according to SXSW:

After surviving a setup by his criminal boss, a hitman rescues a young prostitute and flees with her to Galveston, Texas, where the two find strength in each other as dangerous pursuers and the shadows of their pasts follow close behind.

A release date for the movie is not set at the moment, but it could come following the premiere at SXSW.
