Low Down movie clip
Maleficent star Elle Fanning is attached to star in How to Talk to Girls at Parties, an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman short story that will be directed by John Cameron Mitchell.
Howard Gertler, who received an Academy Award nomination for the documentary How to Survive a Plague, will produce with Gaiman and Mitchell.
The short story, published in 2006, told of two teen boys who go to a party in 1970s London. While one has no trouble scoring a girl right off the bat, the shy one is left to fend for himself and has to find a way to make conversation. He soon finds out that the girls at the party are more than they seem. The story was nominated for a Hugo Award for best short story and won the Locus Award in the same category.
The script by Philippa Goslett and Mitchell turns Parites into more of a two-hander love story focusing on a schoolboy and punk who uses music and art as a way to escape and a female alien tourist (Fanning) who wants to escape her tour group and explore the most dangerous place in the galaxy, the London suburb of Croydon.
Michael J. Werner and Winnie Lau of Fortissimo Films are executive producing.
CAA, which packaged the project, is arranging financing and will represent the film’s North American distribution rights.

ELLE FANNING WILL STAR IN “MARY SHELLEY”
Elle Fanning will play the titular character in Branded Pictures Entertainment’s upcoming MARY SHELLEY. The biopic follows the teenage “Frankenstein” author through the tragic events of her early life (Shelley lost her three eldest children and her husband at a young age), and explores the parallels between her life and her famous novel. Hailee Steinfeld was previously attached to star. “Mary Shelley” also has a new director; “Skeleton Key” director Iain Softley is replacing Paul Andrew Williams at the helm. Ezra Miller will play Mary’s husband Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Jack Huston has been cast as Frankenstein’s monster.
Fanning is a great choice for Mary Shelley, at least as the film characterizes her; with a long history of playing haunted characters lost in their own minds (seriously, a long history–check out nine-year-old Fanning in “Phoebe in Wonderland” for proof), I imagine that she’ll be, at worst, very good in the role. Of course, historically, Mary Shelley was something of a spitfire–a feminist and liberal long before her time, raised by and married to radicals, but willing and able to make up her own mind about politics and society. Hopefully the film will incorporate some of that into its portrayal of Shelley. If it does, I’m sure Fanning will manage that aspect of the character as well.
Mary Shelley” is being produced by Damon Lane, J. Todd Harris, Marc Marcum, and Rose Ganguzza. Harris was a producer on the star-studded indie film “The Kids Are All Right,” while Ganguzza has already cut her teeth on the biopic genre as a producer on “Kill Your Darlings,” a film about the life of Alan Ginsberg.
The concept of “Mary Shelley” seems right in line with “Saving Mr. Banks” and “Finding Neverland,” two movies that were, revisionist history aside, both pretty enjoyable and reasonably financially successful. Fittingly, given the Gothic nature of “Frankenstein,” “Mary Shelley” sounds as if it’s going to have a darker tone than its predecessors in its incredibly specific sub-genre. As a sucker for the tortured, capital-R-Romantic genius archetype, I approve–and it’s nice to see some women getting in on the game. With the right characterization and stylistic touches, this should be a movie I’ll be excited to see.
Fanning is repped by WME and Echo Lake Entertainment; Softley is repped by WME.
