While we are still eagerly binging The Great on Hulu and loving every second of Elle’s performance, what we really can’t wait for is her upcoming film The Nightingale, in which she stars alongside her sister.
For the first time ever, the two Fanning girls will be playing on-screen sisters in this film based on Kristin Hannah’s novel. The film takes place in 1939 France, while Elle and Dakota’s characters come of age during the Nazi occupation.
“For years, we have looked for a film to do with one another and then this gem appeared,” the Fanning sisters said in a statement. “As sisters, to share our artistry with each other while bringing such a powerful sister story to life is a dream come true.”
The film was initially set to be released in December of 2020, though the global pandemic has made it anyone’s guess whether the film will wrap for its anticipated premiere date.
For now, we urge you to join us on the wild quest of Catherine the Great’s life, brought to life in an incredible performance by this inimitable Hollywood sweetheart.
The Great is streaming on Hulu.
