RLJE Films has released the first trailer for the upcoming drama Galveston, which premiered at this year’s SXSW Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, starring Ben Foster (Hell or High Water), and Elle Fanning (The Beguiled), based on the novel of the same name by True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto, which can be viewed in the player below!
In Galveston, Roy is a heavy-drinking criminal enforcer and mob hit man whose boss set him up in a double-cross scheme. After killing his would-be assassins before they could kill him, Roy discovers Rocky, a young woman being held captive, and reluctantly takes her with him on his escape. Determined to find safety and sanctuary in Galveston, Roy must find a way to stop his boss from pursuing them while trying to out-run the demons from his and Rocky’s pasts.
Lili Reinhart (Riverdale) and Beau Bridges (Homeland) also star in the feature directed by Mélanie Laurent (Breathe) from a script by Jim Hammett. Galveston is produced by Tyler Davidson (Take Shelter) with his company Low Spark Films providing sole financing and production services. The project was executive produced by Jean Doumanian (Everyone Says I Love You), Patrick Daly (August: Osage County), Kevin Flanigan (Take Shelter), Dexter Braff (The Kings of Summer), and Sean Thomas O’Brien (My Blind Brother).
Galveston is set to arrive in theaters this fall.
