It’s been nearly a year since the news broke that Dakota Fanning had joined the cast of “Girl’s Night Out”, Michael Hoffman’s film based on the true story of how the future Queen of Britain, Princess Elizabeth, and her sister Princess Margaret celebrated VE Day in 1945. Alexandra Roach joined the cast back in November, but as with all films long in gestation, it looks like Fanning has dropped out of the project – allowing British actress Juno Templeto jump into the role.
When the film was first announced back in February 2011, the plot details weren’t too specific, stating ” When [Princess Margaret] and her sister Elizabeth are allowed out from Buckingham Palace for one night to join in the celebrations, the night encompasses thrills, romance and danger.” However Britain’s Daily Mail now have further information, “Elizabeth has an innocent romance (this bit is totally fictional, folks!) with a recently returned soldier, who doesn’t realise he’s hanging out with a princess. The pair even go dancing at the Ritz.”
Temple was one of our Faces to Watch in 2012, and this year alone will see her in dark comedy “The Brass Teapot” opposite Michael Angarano, and filming thriller “Magic Magic” opposite Michael Cera. This is a great coup for the actress however, who will get her first big breakout in perhaps the most anticipated film of the year, Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises”.
Filming on “Girls’ Night Out” is set to start this Fall on location in London.
