Director Gerard lands Dakota Fanning for his big Hollywood break

By in January 25, 2015 • Filed in: Alerts, News & Rumors, Upcoming Projects

The Kerry director is set to work with Dakota Fanning on a silver screen adaptation of the memoir Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness.

The book is an adaptation of Susannah Cahalan’s struggle with mental health problems. Fanning will portray the lead character as she struggles with her inner torment.

Bestseller Brain On Fire begins with Cahalan’s admission to a psychiatric facility at just 24 years of age.

It has been picked up by Hollywood star Charlize Theron’s production company Denver and Delilah Films.

The Monster star will act as a producer on the movie but it has not yet been announced if she will also take up a role in the flick.

Barrett (inset) said he was “honoured” to bring Cahalan’s story to life with two of Hollywood’s leading ladies.

The Pilgrim’s Hill filmmaker is no stranger to tackling tough subjects on screen. His first two features both focused on sensitive plots. His second, Glasslands, will be screened at the prestigious Sundance film festival to compete in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition.

TRAFFICKING

The film, starring Jack Reynor and Toni Collette, depicts the story of a young Irish taxi driver who gets caught up in the world of human trafficking.

Talented Barrett will also pen the screen adaption of the harrowing tale told in the Cahalan’s memoir.

Shooting is due to begin in May in both Vancouver and New York. [Source]

Set in a time when neither divorce nor gay marriage were an option, EFFIE GRAY is the story of a young woman coming of age and finding her own voice in a world where women were expected to be seen but not heard. EFFIE GRAY explores the roots of sexual intolerance, which continue to have a stronghold today, while shedding light on the marital politics of the Victorian era.

Effie Gray is out in theaters on April 3rd.

Dakota Fanning in Night Moves
“For Night Moves, I dyed my hair dark. That was a shock. Everyone acted differently toward me—even my family. My mom has dark hair and dark eyes, so I’ve never really looked like her. For the first time, we were similar. And 
she was not into it. [Laughs] 
The day after the movie 
ended, I went back to being 
blonde—and myself.”
