Eisenberg, Fanning Making 'Night Moves'

August 13, 2012

Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning are in talks to star in Kelly Reichardt's indie thriller "Night Moves," which will also star Peter Sarsgaard.

Written by Reichardt ("Wendy and Lucy"), story follows three eco-terrorists who plot to blow up a dam.

Eisenberg will play the ringleader, while Fanning will play a wealthy young girl who funds the plan. Sarsgaard will play the mastermind behind the bomb.

Eisenberg replaces Reichardt's "Meek's Cutoff" star Paul Dano, who was attached as recently as February. Rooney Mara was also approached to star last year, though she was never officially involved with the project.

Reichardt's longtime collaborators Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani are producing through the latter's Film Science banner, while Todd Haynes is expected to exec produce, having served that role on Reichardt's past three features. Producers are aiming to start production this October in Oregon. Read More
