Dakota Fanning has been allegedly confirmed to star in the lead role in the upcoming periodic drama biopic ‘Effie’.

The ‘Twilight Saga’ star, Dakota Fanning, 17 has been reportedly confirmed to play the lead character in the upcoming periodic drama ‘Effie’. She will play the titular character in the movie. The movie is based on 1850s Victorian drama.

The story of the movie is based on a strange but true story, which focuses on the wedding night between John Ruskin, a Victorian artist, poet, architect and political thinker and his wife Effie Gray. Ruskin marries her, at her age of 17, after he gets infatuated to her.

However, when the time comes to consummate their marriage, something makes Ruskin disgusted by her body and would not consummate their marriage over for five years. Effie gets married to the protégé of Ruskin and painter, John Everett Millais, after her divorce with Ruskin.

Greg has been set to play the role of Ruskin, while Tom Sturridge plays the role of Millais. Emma Thompson, who provided the script for the movie, will don the role of Lady Eastlake, who saves Effie, when it gets clear that, the union was destroying the young Effie.

Julie Walters and Derek Jacobi play the parents of Ruskin and Edward Fox is reportedly in talks to play the role of Sir Charles Eastlake, the husband of Lady Eastlake. The production of the movie ‘Effie’ is scheduled to start from October 17, 2011 in London, Scotland and Venice.

Carey Mulligan and Saoirse Ronan were first considered to play the role of Effie. Richard Laxton of ‘An Englishman in New York’ will helm the movie, while Don Rosenfeld will produce the movie along with Andreas Roald.
