Apparently, and be prepared, the 18-year-old Dakota Fanning will be starring in The Last Robin Hood as 65-year-old Kevin Kline girlfriend. Yes. Girlfriend.
Based on a true story, The Last Robin Hood, is a biopic about famous film Errol Flynn, best know for the 1938 action epic The Adventures of Robin Hood. Kline will star as Flynn, who at 48 began pursuing a 15-year-old actress Beverly Aadland.
The romance was blessed by Beverly mother, Florence Aadland, who will be played by Susan Sarandon. And now it is confirmed by Deadline that Fanning has signed on to play Beverly, whose love affair ended when Flynn died at age 50.
Scandals are not new to Flynn; from statutory rape charges, to his wish to star opposite Aadland in Stanley Kubrick’s Lolita, but Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, seem more interested to tackle the humanity in the controversial love rather than the scandals.
