Elle Fanning To Portray Writer Mary Shelley In "A Storm In The Stars"

Elle Fanning will play "Frankenstein" writer Mary Shelley in the film "A Storm In The Stars".  

According to THR, the period drama, directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and produced by Amy Baer, follows the story of the steamy romance between dangerously gifted poet Percy Shelley and 17-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft, who would a year later write Frankenstein as Mary Shelley, a young woman out of step with her time who wrote one of the first pieces of literary genre fiction in modern times.

"Elle is amazingly smart and talented and very much relates to Mary as a young woman," Ms. Baer was quoted as saying, adding: "She is going to do something extraordinary in this role that will transition her from a compelling young adult to a formidable leading lady."

Are you looking forward to watching Elle Fanning as Mary Shelley?
