Savannah has scored another major movie.

City officials announced that Robert Redford has picked the city as the location for “The Conspirator,” a post-Civil War film about Mary Surratt, a boarding house owner, who was hanged for aiding John Wilkes Booth in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

Redford previously filmed along the Georgia coast for “The Legend of Bagger Vance” in 1999. Other films made in Georgia’s oldest city include “Forrest Gump,” “Glory,” “The General’s Daughter” and “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.” Last month, Miley Cyrus finished work in Savannah on Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Last Song.”
