SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Filming is underway in Savannah, Georgia, for the psychological thriller "Lizzie," which stars Chloe Sevigny as Lizzie Borden.

The film centers on the true events surrounding the infamous ax murders of Borden's father and stepmother in Massachusetts in 1892. Lizzie Borden was tried and acquitted for the killings, and no one else was ever charged.

The film also stars Kristen Stewart as Bridget Sullivan, the Bordens' live-in maid and witness to the slayings. The film is under the direction of Craig William Macneill, who gained attention with "The Boy."

Beth Nelson, executive director of Savannah Area Film Office, tells the Savannah Morning News (http://bit.ly/2fCAhe4) filiming will be conducted at locations around the Georgia coastal city famous for its manicured parks, historical charm and antebellum architecture.
