The upcoming movie Effie Gray starring Dakota Fanning has released a new trailer online this week. You can check it out above.
Along with Fanning, the Richard Laxton directed movie stars Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Tom Sturridge, Robbie Coltrane, Claudia Cardinale, Derek Jacobi, David Suchet, James Fox and Linda Bassett.
Synopsis: In her original screenplay EFFIE GRAY, writer Emma Thompson takes a bold look at the real life story of the Effie Gray-John Ruskin marriage, while courageously exposing what was truly hiding behind the veil of their public life. Set in a time when neither divorce nor gay marriage were an option, EFFIE GRAY is the story of a young woman coming of age and finding her own voice in a world where women were expected to be seen but not heard. EFFIE GRAY explores the roots of sexual intolerance, which continue to have a stronghold today, while shedding light on the marital politics of the Victorian era.
Effie Gray is out in theaters on April 3rd.

Dakota Fanning in Night Moves
“For Night Moves, I dyed my hair dark. That was a shock. Everyone acted differently toward me—even my family. My mom has dark hair and dark eyes, so I’ve never really looked like her. For the first time, we were similar. And

Dakota Fanning is coming to San Francisco. The War of the Worlds actress is scheduled to attend the Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF) which opens October 3rd.
With her new film Effie Gray the one-time child star is out to once again prove that she has what it takes to command the big screen.
The role, as a Victorian child-bride marks the first time the Georgia native will play lead and attempt to carry a film as an adult.
Shot in the British Isles, the Effie Gray is receiving strong notices. Dakota’s performance has been called “mesmerizing” – a word which we like, we just hope it means in a good way.
If you want to see the star, you better grab tickets soon. There’s only on screening. So mark your calendar for Saturday, October 12 at 6:30pm. That’s when Fanning is scheduled to arrive at the Christopher B. Smith Film Center in San Rafael, located a hop and a skip north of San Francisco.

Dakota Fanning is in Atlanta filming a role in “The Last of Robin Hood” about the late, legendary Hollywood actor Errol Flynn.
The project stars Kevin Kline in the lead role. Conyers’ own Fanning plays Beverly Aadland, Flynn’s youthful paramour at the end of his life, and Susan Sarandon plays Beverly’s mother, Florence Aadland.(By the way have Sarandon and Grant Henry had their big ping-pong match yet?)
Sarandon’s been spotted walking her dog in the Virginia Highland area. Fanning was out for dinner last night at Midtown’s favorite celeb magnet: STK. She showed up in a chic all-black ensemble with silver shoes, her hair tucked into a loose braid. She also had some birthday cake. [Source]
UPDATE: Echo Lake has also brought over Graciella Sanchez to work with Brittany Kahan on starting the talent component of the management company. Aside from the Fanning sisters, the other actors coming aboard are: Jonathan Jackson (Nashville), Gregory Smith and Travis Milne (Rookie Blue), Ivana Milicevic (Banshee), Jordan Gavaris (Orphan Black), Jacob Wysocki (Terri) and Marguerite Moreau.
EXCLUSIVE: As we kick off 2013, here’s a reminder that it’s a hard business. Dakota and Elle Fanning have left One Talent Management, where JJ Harris repped the actresses practically since they were babies. What happened is that the thesps were handled day to day at One Talent by Brittany Kahan, who is leaving them to start a talent management division at the production company Echo Lake, which previously repped filmmakers. She’s taking the Fannings with her. Dakota, coming to the end of the Twilight Saga films, just finished the Naomi Foner-directed Very Good Girls and the Richard Laxton-directed Effie, while Elle just finished Maleficent with Angelina Jolie and is attached to star in Olive’s Ocean. The actresses are agented by WME. [Source]
It is a great new!
