Dakota Fanning is being linked to Franny

Dakota Fanning is reportedly in talks to join indie drama Franny.

The 19-year-old and British actor Theo James are said to be "in negotiations" to star as a young couple in Andrew Renzi's film, reported The Wrap.

Richard Gere is already on board to play a "hedonistic philanthropist", who decides to intervene into the lives of the lovers in an attempt to recreate his former life.

Aspiring filmmaker Andrew will direct the movie from his own screenplay, which he developed at the 2013 Sundance Screenwriters Lab.

Shooting is scheduled to start in Philadelphia in October.

Following her stint as Volturi vampire Jane in the Twilight films, Dakota - the elder sister of actress Elle - will next be seen in environmental drama Night Moves alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Peter Sarsgaard, and drama Very Good Girls.

Theo will make his major film debut as Tobias 'Four' Eaton alongside Kate Winslet and Shailene Woodley in sci-fi adventure Divergent, the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Noth's novel.

The 28-year-old's previous roles include appearances in Woody Allen's You Will Meet A Tall, Dark Stranger, The Inbetweeners Movie and Underworld: Awakening.
