Looks like Hollywood will be spending summer in Savannah this year.

"The Peanut Butter Falcon," which filmed in Savannah in 2017, was acquired for U.S. distribution last week by Roadside Attractions, Deadline reports. The film, which stars Shia LaBeouf and Dakota Johnson, is set to hit theaters on August 9.

 

Written and directed by Michael Schwartz and Tyler Nilson, the film centers on Zak (Zack Gottsagen) "who runs away from a residential nursing home to follow his dream of attending the professional wrestling school of his idol, The Salt Water Redneck (Thomas Haden Church). A strange turn of events pairs him on the road with Tyler (LaBeouf), a small-time outlaw on the run, who becomes Zak’s unlikely coach and ally. Together they wind through deltas, elude capture, drink whiskey, find God, catch fish, and convince Eleanor (Johnson), a kind nursing home employee charged with Zak’s return, to join them on their journey."

The film premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW) earlier this year to good reviews with LaBeouf recounting his well-publicized time in Savannah, saying he was “reaching for God real heavy.”
