GEORGETOWN, S.C. (AP) -- They will be setting up the lights and
cameras for the action next month as a new science fiction movie
films on the South Carolina coast.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports the film "Isopod" will be
shot in Georgetown.

City Administrator Chris Eldridge says it's an ecological
disaster movie and location scouts came to town about three weeks
ago to see what the city had to offer.

Eldridge says the scouts were looking for a coastal town and
liked the Georgetown waterfront and the city's oak shrouded
streets.

He says Barry Levinson, who won the Oscar for best director in
1989 for "Rain Man," will direct the film.
