SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) -- Officials in Savannah say a film adaptation of the novel "And Yet You Still Chose Me" will be shot in the city next year, with casting set for Oct. 2 and 3 at the Savannah Mall.

Jay Self, Savannah's director of Tourism and Film Services, says the 1980s-era drama is being produced by Onyx Pearl, an Atlanta film production company, and will have a budget of $12 million to $15 million.

He says the film will be directed by Perla Faye Humphrey, director and producer of the films "Unforgiven Sins" and "7 Days a Yellow." The script is based on a novel by Kimberly Ray.

Production on the Onyx Pearl film is set to start in June. Casting will be conducted in Savannah, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
