Robert Redford picks Savannah for historical film
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Robert Redford has picked the city of Savannah as the location for his post-Civil War film about a woman who was hanged for aiding the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln.
City officials announced the selection Friday. Redford previously filmed along the Georgia coast for "The Legend of Bagger Vance" in 1999.
Other films made in Georgia's oldest city include "Forrest Gump," "Glory," "The General's Daughter" and "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil."
Last month, 16-year-old superstar Miley Cyrus finished work in Savannah on Walt Disney Pictures' "The Last Song."
The American Film Company production will tell the story of boarding house owner Mary Surratt, who was hanged in 1865 after being convicted of aiding John Wilkes Booth.
