Robert Redford Conspirator Caught in Savannah


Here’s one we missed! Last month Savannah’s local NBC affiliate WSAV Channel 3 reported that the Robert Redford film “The Conspirator” had become an irresistible attraction to tourists and townsfolk alike and that Jay Self, longtime film commissioner for the city, believed the film project would infuse upwards of $10 million to Savannah’s economy.

The film is based on the events surrounding the trial of Mary Surratt (played by Robin Wright Penn), one of four people charged as conspirators in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, and from what we gather the shoot should be completed before the end of the year. {link to Wikipedia article on Mary Surratt – warning: SPOILERS}

Other actors include: Evan Rachel Wood, Stephen Root, and Kevin Kline.
