It’s been nearly 20 years since their hit action thriller Man On Fire blew away audiences and further helped solidify Dakota Fanning as a future star but it now looks like she is ready to reteam with the Oscar Winning Denzel Washington. Sources tell Deadline Fanning is set to star opposite Washington in Antoine Fuqua’s The Equalizer 3 for Sony Pictures.
Written by Richard Wenk, the film is being produced by Escape Artists’ Academy Award nominee Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and Washington. While the plot is being kept under wraps, the film is the third film in The Equalizer series, directed by Fuqua and starring Washington. The first film earned over $194 million worldwide, leading to a sequel, which grossed over $190 million worldwide. The film will be released in theaters on September 1, 2023.
While Man On Fire cleared the way for Washington to kicking ass in future films like the Equalizer series, the film is just as well known for the touching scenes between Washington and Fanning where he plays her loyal and caring bodyguard and Sony and Fuqua saw this as the perfect opportunity to reunite the two talents.
Fanning can currently be seen in Showtime’s The First Lady for director Susanne Bier and opposite Michelle Pfeiffer. She most recently finished production on limited series for Showtime, Steve Zaillian’s adaptation of Ripley, opposite Andrew Scott and she was previously seen reprising the role of “Sarah Howard” in season 2 of The Alienist: Angel Of Darkness. Fanning can also be seen in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and her other film credits include I Am Sam, Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat, War of the Worlds, Uptown Girls, Charlotte’s Web, and The Twilight Saga.

Fanning, one of the new global ambassadors for Clé de Peau Beauté, shares her well-being secrets.
Since the age of six, when she was cast in her first feature film, I Am Sam, Dakota Fanning has been making a place for herself in Hollywood. This spring, the 28-year-old played Betty Ford’s daughter in The First Lady, the Showtime drama series about American White House leadership, and she’ll be seen later this year in crime thriller Ripley, a series about a 1960s grifter. Plus, Japanese beauty brand Clé de Peau Beauté celebrated its 40th anniversary by welcoming the American actor and producer (she launched her production company, Lewellen Pictures, with her sister, Elle, last year) as one of its muses, alongside industry peers Ella Balinska and Diana Silvers. Fanning is also a big fan of Clé de Peau Beauté’s initiative, which has been encouraging young women around the world to pursue studies in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) since 2019.
WHAT DOES COLLABORATING WITH CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ MEAN TO YOU?
“I really love the brand’s approach to beauty, which is about unlocking the radiance within us all—highlighting each person’s uniqueness and bringing that out with the aid of its luxurious skincare products and makeup. I love that, and the company does so much philanthropic work as well, helping educate young girls around the world. That’s very important to me.”
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU WAKE UP?
“I take a probiotic. Our gut is where it all begins. It’s the foundation of our health and what comes through our skin. I swear by it.”
Dakota Fanning undoubtedly has one of the most impressive careers in Hollywood. She broke onto the scene at a young age and has continued to wow us with iconic roles throughout her career. Watch above to see Fanning discuss her roles from Uptown Girls all the way to present-day projects such as The First Lady.
Dakota Fanning gives a lot of interviews, yet a great deal about her life off-screen remains a mystery. The 28-year-old actor and producer knows it, too. In fact, she embraces it: “I think people are starting to catch on.” She is someone who has lived her entire life in the limelight, winning Critics Choice Awards when most 7-year-olds were busy learning second-grade arithmetic, but Fanning has managed to do what most in her situation have tried and failed to—keep her private life, well, private. “There are [things that people don’t know]—1000%,” she says. Then again, that’s sort of been the point. “I can’t tell [you], because then my mystique is gonna be lost,” she adds.
Even so, Fanning, who is returning to the screen in Showtime’s new series The First Lady, didn’t come off the least bit guarded during our recent Zoom conversation. On the contrary, the actor was as open and relaxed as ever, perched in a bright-white spot in her Los Angeles home and looking every bit the movie star—maybe even ethereal—in a crisp button-down shirt. Her hair was slicked back in a low bun, and her wrist was decorated with a vintage gold watch. “I don’t know if people don’t think I’m fun, but I think I’m a lot less serious than people may assume,” Fanning says, noting how often her own personality is confused with those of the very serious characters she portrays on-screen. “I love to have fun, I love to make people laugh, [and] I don’t take myself too seriously.”
Everything she says is true. In the span of our 80-minute call, Fanning gushes about her dedication to reality television (“I watch all the Real Housewives, always have. I love them,” she says with a passion) as well as her die-hard fandom over Mercedes Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton (“Don’t [even] get me started,” she says). She then goes into story mode about the time her laptop broke on the set of her forthcoming series Ripley in Italy and her ensuing downward spiral. Relatably, Fanning can’t wind down without her favorite not-guilty-to-her TV shows, especially after a long day of shooting. “If I enjoy something, I don’t know why I should feel that guilty about it,” she says. Thus, a quest to find an Apple store anywhere near the Amalfi Coast was underway.
Intensely dedicated to her craft, prone to Bravo binging and self-deprecation, and emanating the kind of confidence only someone who’s truly figured herself out can exude, Fanning isn’t an easy person to sum up. “I’m full of a lot of contradictions,” she says. “And there’s a very, very sweet spot in the middle of these contradictions, and that’s where I live.”
Tapping into female strength and the elemental qualities of beauty, Clé de Peau Beauté has launched a new campaign featuring acting stalwarts Dakota Fanning, Diana Silvers, and Ella Balinska for a journey towards #InfiniteRadiance. With this latest promotional push, the Japanese cosmetic and skincare brand is revelling in the kaleidoscopic essence of attractiveness, something that bypasses traditional binaries and has found a footing in an individual’s innate idiosyncrasies. S/ recently spoke with Fanning about how this ambassador position aligns with her personal morals, beauty’s true interiority, as well as her most riveting red-carpet moment.
What does a brand ambassadorship mean to you?
“When I was approached about this ambassador position, I was excited because it’s a brand that I genuinely use and have loved for quite some time. It is important for me that the partnership be genuine and with a company whose message I believe in. Everyone is so wonderful that I’ve gotten to meet virtually in Japan. I was also excited to be a part of this specific ambassadorship with Diana and Ella, two other women that I admire so much. Getting to know them, the little bit that we have had a chance to so far, has been great. It’s always fun to get to share an experience with other people.”
Female camaraderie is neatly interwoven throughout this promotional push. How have you, Ella, and Diana established a unique connection throughout the process so far?
“It was really fun to finally connect in person and get to know each other a bit. I look forward to more, whether it is having dinner or getting to do some things off the set of a campaign.”
“I was a fan of both before this came about and I’m excited for what’s to come. Also, I think it’s wonderful that Clé de Peau Beauté wants this campaign to feature women who look different, allowing people to see their makeup on different skin-tones — I think that’s super important.”
