Gerardo Naranjo is rounding out the cast for his next project…
The Mexican Miss Bala filmmaker has cast Dakota Fanning, Harry Potter’s Frank Dillan and Shameless’ Jeremy Allen White, as well X-Men: First Class’ Zoe Kravitz and Caleb Landry Jones, for his untitled English-language debut.
Fanning will star in the music-based film as Viena, a roadie on a journey of self-discovery while on tour with a punk band in the 1980s.
Gerardo Naranjo may soon be directing Dakota Fanning in his English-language debut.
The 19-year-old actress has been attached to star in the Mexican filmmaker’s untitled coming-of-age story, which Naranjo will direct from his own screenplay.
The film, Naranjo’s English-language debut, is set to begin filming in February.
It centers on Viena (Fanning), a roadie who’s on a journey of self-discovery and survival as part of a punk band’s convoy, traveling through America circa the 1980s.
Alex Orlovsky and Hunter Gray will produce and co-finance the film through their Verisimilitude production banner. The new film re-teams the pair with Naranjo after the trio collaborated on the helmer’s Voy a explotar.
Naranjo rose to acclaim after directing the critically acclaimed Spanish-language film Miss Bala, starring Stephanie Sigman.
