Dakota Fanning

Already slated to direct the remake of the 1966 British caper comedy Gambit with Colin Firth already set to lead the film with Cameron Diaz at his side, director Michael Hoffman (The Last Station, One Fine Day) is lining up yet another project. THR reports that the filmmaker will be at the helm of Girls' Night Out, a romantic fairytale of sorts that will have Dakota Fanning playing a teenage Princess Margaret around the time of V.E. Day in 1945. In the film, the younger sister of the current Queen Elizabeth II is allowed to leave Buckingham Palace for one night to join in the victory celebrations, alongside her older sister. Read on!

As we've seen Ms. Fanning grow up from a very young child actress to a promising teenage star approaching her 17th birthday, it certainly seems like she'll be hanging around the industry for awhile. Few child actors are able to grow out of their adorable stage and blossom into mature talents, but Fanning seems to be a rare breed. The actress who will play her sister has yet to be cast, but the role will likely be filled before the project is shopped around to buyers at the European Film Market later this year. Interested?
