Angelina Jolie has signed up to play the titular character. Robert Stromberg will direct. And now, we could have our 'Beauty'. Super 8 co-star, Elle Fanning is up for the princess. Elle is of course the younger sister of Dakota Fanning.
I love this news. Unlike Lily Collins in the Snow White remake, Mirror Mirror, Fanning is a proven actress with a ton of talent. Despite how young she is, her performance in Super 8 conveyed a ton of emotion. I hope this deal is done and she's on board. This could be great. We'll let you know when it's confirmed.
