Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning are getting their eco-terrorist on, as Variety reports that they have joined the cast of Night Moves for Film Science and writer-director Kelly Reichardt (Meek’s Cutoff).
The story centres on three eco-terrorists who plan on blowing up a dam. Jesse Eisenberg will play the leader of the trio, and Dakota Fanning is up to be a rich young woman who finances the operation. Peter Sarsgaard, who joined the project last October, plays the bomb maker. Paul Dano was originally attached for Jesse Eisenberg’s role, although he is no longer involved in the project.
Kelly Reichardt will direct from her own screenplay. Production is scheduled to begin this October in Portland, Oregon.
