Galveston: Melanie Laurent’s English Debut, Starring Ben Foster and Elle Fanning

Galveston, starring Ben Foster and Elle Fanning, will be released by RLJE in the fall.

The movie, based on the novel “Galveston” by “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto, is directed by French actress-turned-director Melanie Laurent from a script by Jim Hammett.

“Galveston” is Laurent’s English-language directorial debut. Lili Reinhart (“Riverdale”), and Beau Bridges (“Homeland”) also star.

Tyler Davidson (“Take Shelter”) produced the film, with his company Low Spark Films providing financing and production services.

“Fanning and Foster deliver powerful performances in this provoking drama,” said Mark Ward, chief acquisitions officer for RLJE Films. “Their chemistry captures audiences on a gripping, emotional ride.  We are so proud to bring this film to the big screen.“
