Parts of Bay & River Streets closed for filming this week


At times during the rest of this week, some on-ramps and streets in downtown will be closed off to allow a production crew to film movie scenes in Savannah.

We’re kind of used to that.

A crew from Black Label Media company is currently in town filming a Korean War movie titled, ‘Devotion’. The aerial epic stars Jonathan Majors (Da 5 Bloods) and Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick) and charts the true story of U.S. Navy fighter pilots, Jesse Brown and Tom Hudner, two young men from different worlds. Initiated together into the VF-32 squadron, they are pushed to their limits flying a new design of fighter jet. Their friendship is tested to the hilt when one of them is shot down behind enemy lines.

Also starring are Thomas Sadoski, Joe Jonas, Daren Kagasoff, Christina Jackson and Spencer Neville.

Starting on Wednesday and lasting through Saturday of this week, parts of River Street and Bay Street will be closed, as well as the Drayton and Abercorn ramps onto River street.

On Saturday the Abercorn ramp to River Street will also be closed.

We’re glad to see a film crew back in the Hostess City. We don’t mind a few streets closed.
