After impressing with her feature directorial debut “Meadowland,” filmmaker Reed Morano is going post-apocalyptic, and has seeming found inspiration (at least for the title of the movie) from a hit song.
Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning have signed up to star in “I Think We’re Alone Now.” In the script written by Mike Makowsky, Dinklage will play Del, who thinks he’s all alone on earth after something wipes out the human population. He’s disappointed when Fanning shows up throwing a wrench in his plans for isolation. Compelling stuff, and while there’s no start date yet, the project set to hit the American Film Market next month. But both Dinklage and Fanning have plenty on their plate.
Dinklage’s upcoming films including Martin McDonagh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and Mark Palansky’s “Rememory,” featuring one of Anton Yelchin’s final performances. And of course we’re all still waiting on the final seasons of “Game of Thrones,” set to premiere sometime next year. Meanwhile, Fanning has Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night” and Mike Mills‘ “20th Century Women” opening this fall, with Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” on deck. [THR]
