Fanning who is known more recently for her role as Jane in the Twilight film saga, will now be taking on the role of Olivia, Luke’s new bride. Luke will be played by actor-to-keep-an-eye-on, Theo James. Richard Gere stars opposite the young actors as a self-indulgent philanthropist who ingratiates himself into the lives of the newlyweds in hopes of finding renewed purpose and recreating the life he once had.
James, who is relatively unknown compared to his co-stars, Richard Gere and Fanning, is one to pay attention to. He will also be playing the role of, Four in the highly anticipated 2014 film adaptation of author Veronica Roth's young adult sci-fi novel 'Divergent', starring Shailene Woodley, Kate Winslet, and Ashly Judd.
Andrew Renzi will be directing the indie film ‘Franny’ from his own screenplay he developed at this year’s Sundance Screenwriters Lab. Renzi has also directed the indie film shorts; 'Bloom', 2007, 'The Fort', 2012 and, 'Karaoke!', 2013.
Fanning will begin shooting October 21 in Philadelphia.
