Miley Cyrus Film Soars to the Top of the Box Office After Wednesday Debut
Written by Nicholas Sparks, The Last Song is a drama centered on a rebellious girl who is sent to a Southern beach town for the summer to stay with her father.
The setting, originally North Carolina like the novel, changed to Georgia after states campaigned for months to host production. The movie was almost filmed in Traverse City, Michigan.
Upon beginning production in Tybee Island, Georgia and nearby Savannah, The Last Song became the first movie to be shot and set in Tybee Island that does not feature sea kayaking.
Filming lasted from June 15 to August 18, 2009 with much of it occurring on the island's beach and pier.
