Justin Long injured in car accident, misses “Conspirator” premiere
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Robert Redford’s Civil War courtroom thriller “The Conspirator” screened at the Savannah Film Festival last night. It was the fest’s Director’s Choice, a screening that is kept secret from the general public until the moment the curtain opens.
But one of the film’s cast members who was supposed to be in town to help promote the film couldn’t make it because he was in a car accident.
Justin Long, who plays a Union soldier and compatriot to James McAvoy, was injured in a car accident in Los Angeles and received a minor concussion, preventing him from traveling to Savannah for the fest.
“He’s completely fine now,” a source told PEOPLE magazine.
Redford’s drama was filmed in Savannah, and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. It tells the story of Mary Surrat (Robin Wright), a woman who went on trial following the assassination of Abrahama Lincoln.
It was purchased by Roadside Attractions, and will be released Spring 2011.
