Filmmaker Mahmoud Shoulizadeh finished filming "The Prisoner" in Camden County this week, according to the Coastal Georgia Film Alliance.

In the film, a man on death row makes a last request of a visitor who is a former prison mate.

The shoot took only a few days with the assistance of the Camden County Sheriff's Department and the cities of St. Marys and Woodbine, the film alliance chair, Doug Vaught, said in a statement.

"The Prisoner" is the second film shot in Coastal Georgia in the past few months. "Identify Thief," starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman, is scheduled for release in February. The comedy includes landscapes of St. Marys and Woodbine.
