Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning will play handicapped twins in Arvin Brown's based-on-true-story drama "Hurricane Mary."
Jumping in as an item, Dakota Fanning and her sister Elle Fanning have both agreed to appear together in a true-life drama feature titled "Hurricane Mary", Variety has learned.
Joining the starry cast already containing Patricia Clarkson, Chris Cooper, William H. Macy, Laura San Giacomo, and Jordi Molla, the Fannings will portray disabled yet gifted twins whose mother, played by Clarkson, undergoes a long battle to earn them rights to have a public school education.
Filming on the project is set to start by September in New York under the direction of Arvin Brown who also executive produces alongside Bel Films' Joseph Burga. Marianne Leone is penning the script with Andrea Simon serving as producer.
