Fairhope has been a busy place for the movie business. The latest project coming to the Eastern Shore is a movie called The Best Friend. The film was announced today on the City of Fairhope's Facebook page, saying that it is "based on a true story that took place here in our beautiful city!"
The Best Friend also stars Casey Affleck, who won an Academy Award for Manchester By the Sea; and Dakota Johnson, who's best know for the Fifty Shades movies -- movies she won't let her parents watch.
Filming will take place in February and March.
