Elle Fanning To Star as Writer Mary Shelley in 'A Storm In The Stars'
Elle Fanning heads back to her ride after a dance class in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (July 30).
It was just announced that the 16-year-old actress will be portraying “Frankenstein” writer Mary Shelley in A Storm In The Stars.
According to THR, the period drama directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and produced by Amy Baer, tells the story of the passionate love affair between dangerously charismatic poet Percy Shelley and 17-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft, who would a year later write Frankenstein as Mary Shelley, a young woman out of step with her time who wrote one of the first pieces of literary genre fiction in modern times.
“Elle is amazingly smart and talented and very much relates to Mary as a young woman,” Ms. Baer shared. “She is going to do something extraordinary in this role that will transition her from a compelling young adult to a formidable leading lady.”
