Logan: Film Shot in St. Louis Opens Next Month at Ronnies 20


A movie shot in St. Louis last summer and featuring Boo Boo Stewart of the Twilight series films will host it premiere September 2 at Ronnies 20 Cine.

The film was written in 2006 by then teenagers Kyle Lawrence, Caleb Doyle, Matt Martin and Tyler Skrobonja of south St. Louis County.

Logan takes its name from the title character in the film played by Leo Howard (who appeared in G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra). The story is about a boy who wants to make a feature movie despite naysayers who say he's too young and inexperienced.  

The 22-year-old Lawrence, who directed and produced the film, now lives in Canada. He tells Daily RFT that he decided to film in St. Louis because it's the town he knows best. Local landmarks viewable in the film include the Hi-Pointe Theatre, Fox High School and Seckman High School in Imperial.

The September 2 premiere will feature a red carpet entrance with the film's stars. The movie officially opens to the public on September 10. Trailer follows...
