Dakota Fanning joins Mississippi Wild and Motel Life
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Turns out that hiatus from acting didn’t last as long as one would have thought, but Hollywood is a fickle place and I’m sure Dakota Fanning knows better than anyone that “one day you’r in, and the next day you are out”. Which is probably why in less than a month the elder Fanning sister has signed on to star in three films, the first we told you about was GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT, next up is MOTEL LIFE and finally MISSISSIPPI WILD. In MOTEL LIFE, Fanning will join Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff, which follows a couple of brothers who are on the lamb after they are involved in a hit-and-run accident. No word on what role Fanning will play in that. The other film is called MISSISSIPPI WILD and follows a young teenage boy (Ryan Donowho) and his girlfriend (Fanning) who steal some diamonds from a local gangster. Right now MISSISSIPPI WILD has three actors in the running to star: Robert Duvall, Forest Whitaker and Mickey Rourke.
MOTEL LIFE is set to start shooting this month and MISSISSIPPI WILD should begin shooting at the end of next month.
