When asked about the reason behind casting Elle Fanning in his movie ‘The Neon Demon’, Nicholas Winding Refn gave a weirdly genuine answer, “to live out my perverse dream of being a 16-year-old-girl, which I think every man has inside of him.” Even though sounded like a little unseemly, his words mark the soul essence of Elle Fanning’s 18-year-old career, which kicked off when she was just 2!
It’s not a cakewalk to maintain the vitality and excitement for such a long period in a rocky industry. Be it the 11-year-old daughter of a Hollywood actor in Sofia Coppola’s ‘Somewhere’, the scared teen girl among a group of 6 kids who shoot with a Super 8 camera and unleashed an alien monster into the city in J. J. Abrams’ sci-fi drama, ‘Super 8’, the charming ghost “Vampira” who haunts a writer in a small town to find the mystery behind a murder, or the sleeping Princess Aurora who bore the curse of a vengeful fairy in Robert Stromberg’s ‘Maleficent’, Elle’s career trajectory is not just unique but diverse and astounding.
Elle’s choice of roles makes her stand out and help to transgress particular genres and types of characters. Blossomed into a child star through movies like ‘The Door in the Floor’, ‘Babel’ and ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, Elle came into age with movies like 3 Generations, ‘The Neon Demon’, ’20th Century Women’, and ‘The Beguiled’. Along with her big sister and actor Dakota Fanning, Elle is one of the wealthiest female actors in the town. At 20, she is an amazing blend of goofiness and professionalism, and showers enough reasons on her fans to cross their fingers until she popped up with another surprising character.
At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Elle Fanning movie ? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Elle Fanning films scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Elle Fanning movies would be as good as some of her recent ones.
1. Teen Spirit (2019)
Elle Fanning returns to her home turf, the free-spirited feminine soul rebelling to shake of her mundane anonymity in a godforsaken farm on the Isle of Wight. Marking the directorial debut of actor Max Minghella, Teen Spirit follows the journey of Violet, played by Elle, to the ecstatic tunes of pop to win a British TV talent show. Reports revealed that Elle had done her own singing live for the scenes. Even though the movie received mixed reviews when it was premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, ‘Teen Spirit’ has everything an Elle feature can offer her fans, and most important among them is her character’s iconic urge to fly above the bars, chasing pervasive dreams.
