Dakota Fanning had been in everything over the past couple of years, and it seems as if she is going to continue to be in everything for a long time to come. Recently I added the independent film Nine Lives to the site and, go figure, Dakota was in that one too and now we can add another one to her list of credits.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Fanning will be voicing the title character in Laika Entertainment’s animated feature Coraline, which will be written and directed by Henry Selick and based on the novel by Neil Gaiman (MirrorMask).
The story centers on a young girl (Fanning) who discovers an alternate version of her life after walking through a secret door in her new home. On the surface, this parallel reality is similar to her real life, only much better. The adventure turns dangerous, however, when the girl’s counterfeit parents try to keep her forever.
Dakota can be seen in Dreamworks’ Dreamer, which hits theaters today.
