Fanning plays boy role

08.20.2004

Dakota Fanning (I AM SAM, MAN ON FIRE) has joined Kurt Russell in the DreamWorks family drama DREAMER about a father and a son who rescue a horse and train it for the breeder's cup. But wait...a young girl starring in a father/son film? Well producers liked Fanning so much they changed the film from a father/son drama to a father/daughter drama. The plot of the film will remain the same except the one character will now become Kurt Russell's daughter. The film is described as a cross between SEABISCUIT and THE HORSE WHISPERER...and TANGO AND CASH (sorry just had to throw that in there). John Gatins will make his directorial debut on the project, which he also wrote. Gatins past writing credits include HARDBALL, SUMMER CATCH and the upcoming Samuel L. Jackson sports drama COACH CARTER. Filming will begin in mid-September in Kentucky and Louisiana with a mid-2005 release planned. Russell is also prepping Disney's superhero comedy SKY HIGH where he will star as the father to a boy about to attend a high school for heroes. Fanning recently wrapped filming on the thriller HIDE AND SEEK with Robert De Niro.
