Foster, Fanning Enter Laurent’s “Galveston”

Ben Foster (“Hell or High Water”) and Elle Fanning (“The Neon Demon”) are set to star in “Galveston” for Low Spark Films and Embankment Films.

Based on the award-winning novel of the same name by “True Detective” creator Nic Pizzolatto, the visceral crime thriller follows two hard-luck outsiders on the run.

One is a debt-collector who flees to the titular Texas town to lie low after surviving an assassination attempt from his loan-sharking boss.

French actress-turned-director Melanie Laurent makes her English-language directorial debut on the film which Tyler Davidson will produce. Filming kicks off on January 10th.
