A thriller shot entirely in Augusta, with the exception of some drone footage of Tybee Island, will air on Tubi July 28.
Mark Crump, the film’s producer, dropped the trailer for Five Star Murder on Facebook Monday.
For the film, the Partridge Inn was transformed into the Libertine Grand Hotel – the possible location of a hidden treasure that hunters are willing to risk their lives to find. When the hurricane blows in, the body count begins to rise.
The MarVista Entertainment flick also featured an Augusta-based crew.
Walton Way was cordoned off on March 7 to make way for the hurricane. For more behind-the-scenes photos, read this March 8 story at Augusta Good News. Also, The Hill, which was shot in Augusta, goes to theaters Aug. 25. Read about it here.
