Elle Fanning has been cast in Francis and The Godfather — the project about the making of The Godfather — playing Ali MacGraw.

She joins a cast that also includes Oscar Isaac as Francis Ford Coppola, Jake Gyllenhaal as producer Robert Evans, and Elisabeth Moss as Eleanor Coppola.

Barry Levinson will direct Francis and The Godfather, which is based on a Black List script by Andrew Farotte that was redeveloped with Levinson.

The feature will chronicle the battles between Coppola, who was 31 at the time, and Evans, which included taking a gamble on casting Marlon Brando, who had not had a hit in years, and a then-little-known Al Pacino. At the time, MacGraw was married to Paramount’s head of production Evans.

Echo Lake Entertainment’s Mike Marcus, Doug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding are producing along with Kevin Turen, Jon Levin and Baltimore Pictures’ Jason Sosnoff.

Endeavor Content is handling worldwide sales of the project, which does not yet have distribution.

Fanning, repped by UTA, Echo Lake Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson, was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for her role on Hulu’s The Great. She will next star with her sister Dakota in the feature film adaptation of The Nightingale for TriStar and director Mélanie Laurent.

Dakota and Elle Fanning have formed their own production company, Lewellen Pictures. In addition, the sisters have signed a first look TV deal with Civic Center Media in affiliation with MRC Television.

The deal furthers Elle’s relationship with Civic Center and MRC, as she currently stars in and executive produces the Hulu series “The Great,” which the companies produce.

Lewellen Pictures will develop both feature film and television projects, as well as other media including podcasts. Their first project under the first look deal will be a series adaptation of the Megan Miranda novel “The Last House.” Sarah Walker is attached to write and executive produce the show, which is described as a crime thriller about an intimate friendship between two girls who fall violently in love with each other’s differences, which, in the end, create doubt, betrayal and tragedy. The Fannings will executive produce alongside Brittany Kahan Ward and Mary Jane Skalski for Echo Lake Entertainment.

“We are thrilled to be launching this company together and to be teaming up with MRC who have been excellent partners on ‘The Great,’” the Fannings said. ” Our goal is to tell stories, through comedy and drama, which are authentic to the human experience, and not just from our own perspective. We also want to create content that we wouldn’t be able to make just as actors. We can learn so much when we look outside our specific points of view.  We have been fortunate to work with many brilliant storytellers and hope to continue that track while also providing opportunities for many more.”

Elle’s other recent credits include “The Roads Not Taken” and “All The Bright Places.” Dakota recently appeared in “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” from Quentin Tarantino. It was announced earlier this week she would play Susan Ford in the Showtime anthology “The First Lady.”

“Elle has brought such perspective and thoughtfulness as an executive producer on ‘The Great,’” said Elise Henderson, president of MRC Television. “We are excited by the vision she and Dakota have for Lewellen Pictures and for MRC Television to provide a home for the stories they will tell.”

“Huzzah!” was the reaction from the set of season 2 of The Great, where Elle Fanning, who was in the midst of filming, learned she had nabbed her first-ever Golden Globe nomination.

“It was pretty exciting. Everyone obviously yelled ‘huzzah’ because that’s what we do on our show,” Fanning told Deadline.

She was nominated for Best Performance By an Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her performance as Catherine The Great in The Tony McNamara-created Hulu series, which picked up a nomination for Best Television Series.

Speaking on the show’s success, “I think it’s such a specific tone and I think it’s a beautiful, escapism to a historical world,” Fanning opined. “It’s very opulent, but there’s such a groundedness to it. It has that dark satire, comedic sense of humor that you can laugh at it but then the emotions really hit hard.”

The Great is a satirical show that tells the story of the rise of Catherine the Great from outsider to the longest-reigning female ruler in Russia’s history with only a few occasional facts.

Like Catherine, Fanning found herself with a new set of powers when she signed on to also produce the series. “I felt like I was, as Elle, coming into my power and learning my authority and navigating that world, which is often male-led,” she shared. “I found myself there and had to find my voice in a sense. Catherine is the same way. She’s finding her power.”

With Season 2 on the horizon, Fanning didn’t give away much but hinted at what’s in store for Peter and Catherine’s already complicated relationship.

“Catherine, I feel, has a real soft spot for [Peter], which gets to be explored. Their relationship gets way more twisted. So we have a lot working together.”

Elle Fanning has teamed up with Jessica Wapner, former science editor of Newsweek, for a documentary podcast series looking at the controversial diet pill and bodybuilding aid DNP.

The pair are working on One Click for Cadence13, the Entercom-backed podcast company. It is based on Wapner’s story for The Daily Beast – The Deadly Internet Diet Drug That Cooks People Alive that was published by in January 2020 and was commissioned by Vespucci Group, the film, TV, podcast & multimedia incubator that produces fact-based stories.

The Great star and exec producer Fanning will narrate the series, based on Wapner’s writing.

DNP is a chemical that was originally used in WWI-era artillery shells that has more recently been sold on the Internet as a diet pill and bodybuilding aid—with fatal results. Fanning and Wapner explore the issues of body image and mental health, and unravel these chain of events.

One Click is designed as a franchise with the story of DNP set as season one. The franchise will explore how a single click on the internet can change a life forever.

The first season of One Click will launch in early 2021.

One Click will be executive produced by Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. It will be directed and produced by Cadence13 and Vespucci Group. Fanning, Wapner, and Brittany Kahan Ward will also produce.

“I am thrilled to be partnering with Cadence 13, Jessica Wapner and Vespucci Group on a podcast that I hope will start an important conversation amongst my peers,” said Fanning. “Our lives are consumed by social media and the internet, and we need to be conscious of the negativity it can breed and the ways in which it is being misused that are so harmful. I even find myself comparing my thighs to other people’s thighs on Instagram. Through Jessica’s investigation into DNP, a drug I had never heard of before, we hope to uncover and expose those preying on the vulnerable. This isn’t a chemistry story—it’s the story of 21-year-olds who burned alive from the inside trying to reach an intangible goal of what society’s beauty standards are today.”

Wapner added, “Moving this story from print to podcast will make for a far-reaching and in-depth examination of the many dire issues surrounding body image. Elle’s intelligence, openness and experience make her an ideal co-host. Vespucci Group’s collaborative spirit, dedication to journalism and storytelling skills make them the ideal producers, along with Cadence13.”

“We’re proud to be aligning with Elle and Jessica, two enormous talents who are clearly passionate about exploring the dangers of body image pressures and the risks people are willing to take, through the lens of this dark and terrifying story,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13.

Fanning is represented by Echo Lake Entertainment, United Talent Agency, and Hansen Jacobson. Vespucci Group is represented by WME.

Elle Fanning is attached to star in the Universal Content Productions (UCP) series based on the real-life case of Michelle Carter, which has landed at Hulu, Variety has learned.

Titled “The Girl From Plainville,” Fanning will star as Carter, who was infamously convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 after texting her boyfriend encouragement to commit suicide three years prior. The series will be based on the Esquire article of the same name by Jesse Barron.

Liz Hannah and Patrick Macmanus will co-write the series and serve as executive producers and co-showrunners. Fanning and Echo Lake’s Brittany Kahan Ward will also executive produce.

In addition, Hulu also announced a series order for a six-episode docuseries titled “The Next Thing You Eat.” Hailing from chef David Chang and filmmaker Morgan Neville, the creators of “Ugly Delicious,” the show is said to explore the seismic changes happening all around us and how they affect not only the restaurant world but people’s fundamental relationship to food.

Chang and a diverse cast of correspondents will take an look at the challenges and opportunities ahead, including how our food is grown, who cooks it, how we pay for it, and whether or not deliciousness will fall by the wayside.

Chang, Christopher Chen, Dave O’Connor and Chris Ying executive produce on behalf of Majordomo Media. Neville and Caitrin Rogers executive produce on behalf of Tremolo Productions, with Chad Mumm executive producing on behalf of Vox Media Studios. “The Next Thing You Eat” is produced by Tremolo Productions and Majordomo Media for Vox Media Studios.

Sony has dated Melanie Laurent’s feature adaptation of Kristin Hannah’s international bestseller The Nightingale for December 25, 2020.

With the Christmas debut of Greta Gerwig’s PG-rated Little Women last year, Sony saw a multitude of women flock to that movie, which grossed more than $203 million worldwide and earned six Oscar noms, winning one for Costume Design.

Real-life sisters Elle and Dakota Fanning will play on-screen sisters in the coming-of-age story, set on the eve of World War II, and their struggle to survive and resist the German occupation of France. The story was inspired by the courageous women of the French Resistance who helped downed Allied airmen escape Nazi-occupied territory and hid Jewish children.
The Nightingale has been published in 45 languages, and went on to sell 3.5 million copies in the U.S. alone and became a No. 1 New York Times Bestseller for a total of 114 weeks on the list.

TriStar EVP Nicole Brown, who leads the division, is overseeing the project with TriStar VP Production Shary Shirazi. Dana Stevens wrote the screenplay for The Nightingale. Elizabeth Cantillon will produce through her production company The Cantillon Company.

The project reteams Laurent with Elle Fanning after the duo worked on the 2018 movie Galveston together.
Christmas Day falls on a Friday this year, and The Nightingale will join such movies as Paramount/Skydance’s The Tomorrow War, 20th Century Studios/Disney’s The Last Duel, Universal’s News of the World, Warner Bros’ untitled Tom & Jerry movie, and DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods 2.
