I guess it’s official now that Cameron will star in the drama “My Sister’s Keeper”. This means another new movie for Cami-fans to look forward to!
Because according to Variety.com, New Line Cinema has set siblings Dakota and Elle Fanning to star with Cameron Diaz in “My Sister’s Keeper”, the Nick Cassavetes-directed adaptation of the Jodi Picoult novel. Production begins this March in Los Angeles.
Elle Fanning will play a young girl who sues for emancipation from her parents. Mom and Dad conceived her as a genetic match with the hope she could prolong her cancer-ridden sister’s life.
Jeremy Leven wrote the script, and Mark Johnson will produce. Both teamed with Cassavetes and New Line on “The Notebook.”
The girls are younger than they were in Picoult’s novel, but a decision was made to cast them younger because it was age-appropriate for Diaz.
