Dakota Fanning and Ryan Donowho have joined the cast of the upcoming Jesse Baget‘s indie thriller titled Mississippi Wild.
But that’s not all, because we just learned that Mickey Rourke, Robert Duvall and Forest Whitaker are in negotiations to co-star in the whole thing and that’s what makes this project quite interesting.
Fanning would play girlfriend to Donowho and together they are teens on the run after stealing some jewelry that belonged to a local gangster.
Mickey Rourke is in talks to play the gangster and Forest Whitaker a rival gangster who is after Rourke’s character. Robert Duvall is also signing on in an unspecified role at the moment.
As we said at the beginning Jesse Baget is in charge for writing and directing the project, while Shannon Makhanian and Ryan Johnson are in charge for producing.
Production is set to begin March 21 in Atlanta, and as usual, stay tuned for more updates on Mississippi Wild.
