Dakota Fanning's next role? Terrorist
That sweet little girl in I Am Sam is now all grown up ... and playing a terrorist in her next film.
Actress Dakota Fanning will join Ewan McGregor and Jennifer Connelly in the film American Pastoral, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by author Philip Roth.
Fanning, 20, will play a 60s anarchist teenager who sets off a bomb to protest American inolvement in the Vietnam War.
McGregor and Connelly will play her parents.
It's not entirely new territory for Fanning - in the 2013 film Night Moves, she played an eco-terrorist, starring alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Peter Sarsgaard.
