The film follows a hit man Roy Cady (played by Foster) who escapes his boss' scheme to set him up. Cady also rescues a young prostitute named Rocky (played by Fanning) and together they make their way to Galveston, Texas.

Galveston had its world premiere at the SXSW festival earlier this year and is currently a part of the Los Angeles Film Festival line up. The film was pulled out of the Toronto International Film Festival after 'work commitments' hindered the director and cast from attending its Canadian premiere, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

The film's supporting cast includes Beau Bridges, Lili Reinhart, Adepero Aduye, Maria Valverde, Robert Aramayo and CK McFarland. Galveston is scheduled to release in cinemas on 19 October.
