Elle’s presence at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival has been confirmed! She’ll be at the premiere of Mary Shelley, I’m assuming on September 8 since that will be its first showing. The festival has released its complete lineup, along with some information about the film.

Mary Shelley

Ireland, United Kingdom, Luxembourg, USA / 120 minutes / 2017 / STC / Colour / English / World Premiere

Elle Fanning stars in this scintillating biopic of the Frankenstein author, chronicling her tempestuous marriage to dissolute poet Percy Bysshe Shelley and the fateful night at a Swiss chateau that inspired her most famous creation.

Directed by Haifaa Al Mansour (Wadjda) and starring Elle Fanning, Mary Shelley depicts the author as a fiercely modern 19th-century woman, and her Frankenstein as the product of unbridled imagination and profound grief.

Daughter of political philosophers William Godwin and Mary Wollstonecraft, who died giving birth to her, Mary (Fanning) is a bookish adolescent of humble means when she meets Percy Bysshe Shelley (Douglas Booth), who, though only 21, is already a celebrated young poet — and a shameless womanizer with one collapsing marriage already under his belt. Defying her beloved but disapproving father, Mary absconds with Shelley — her stepsister, Claire (Bel Powley), in tow. Mary seeks “unconventional approaches to living,” and finds it in spades with her debt-ridden bon vivant scribe, who desires neither monogamy nor the constraints of fatherly responsibility. Yet Percy believes in Mary, and two years into their union he whisks her away to a Swiss chateau for a summer of debauchery presided over by Lord Byron, where Mary will confront personal demons and compose the most influential horror novel of all time.

As Saudi Arabia’s first female filmmaker, Al Mansour is as much a pioneer as her heroine. She renders Mary Shelley as a sumptuous and intoxicating proto-feminist tale of fearless self-actualization and fiery creativity.

Elle has been cast in Woody Allen’s next film! She’ll be working with actors Timothée Chalamet and Selena Gomez, and anything else about it is being kept under wraps. Congratulations to Elle on her new job!

Selena Gomez is joining Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning in Woody Allen’s upcoming film.

The logline for the currently untitled project, which will be released by Amazon Studios, is being kept under wraps, as has been the pattern with most of the filmmaker’s movies.

Allen previously worked with Amazon on his 2016 film Cafe Society. His next movie, Wonder Wheel, starring James Belushi, Juno Temple, Justin Timberlake and Kate Winslet, will make its world premiere as the closing-night film of the New York Film Festival in October and will be released by Amazon.

Gomez, who executive produced the hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, starred in The Fundamentals of Caring and James Franco’s In Dubious Battle. She has finished recording the voice of Mavis in the upcoming Hotel Transylvania 3, which is set to bow in September 2018. Gomez is repped by WME, Lighthouse Management & Media and Ziffren Brittenham.

Fanning was most recently seen in Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled with Nicole Kidman. Her other upcoming films include Mary Shelley, which will play next month at the Toronto International Film Festival; Reed Morano’s I Think We’re Alone Now; Mélanie Laurent’s Galveston; and Max Minghella’s Teen Spirit. She is repped by WME and Echo Lake Entertainment.

Chalamet most recently starred opposite Armie Hammer in Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name, which debuted at Sundance in January and will be released by Sony Classics Pictures in the fall. The actor’s upcoming films include coming-of-age story Hot Summer Nights, which premiered at SXSW; Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut Lady Bird; and Beautiful Boy with Steve Carell. Chalamet previously appeared on Showtime series Homeland. He is repped by UTA and Ginsburg Daniels.

Elle’s 3rd campaign for Tiffany & Co. is here! The images were released earlier today, along with a new article by InStyle, in which Elle talks about her favorite piece of jewelry. This, of course, reminded me I have yet to go through our Fashion Campaigns section in the gallery and add what’s missing. I promise I’ll do it soon!

Shot by Inez and Vinoodh, the portrait campaign brought together six unique personalities, each styled with iconic Tiffany pieces from the brand’s 180-year-rich history: Ballet dancer David Hallberg, musician St. Vincent, model/activist Cameron Russell, and actresses Zoe Kravitz, Janelle Monáe, and Elle Fanning.

To celebrate the stunning campaign, we chatted with Elle Fanning, who was abroad in London at the time, filming her next big project.

“This is my third campaign that I got to do with [Tiffany & Co.]. The Tiffany family is so warm, and you can really feel the love all around the brand,” Fanning said of her ongoing relationship with the jewelry maker.

In her campaign imagery, Fanning appears playful, smiling with her eyes closed while wearing a pink ostrich feather dress and charm necklace adorned with multiple Tiffany Keys.

“My first piece of jewelry was a piece of Tiffany jewelry. I remember I did a movie with Kim Basinger (The Door in the Floor) when I was 4 years old, and as a wrap gift, she gave me a Tiffany charm bracelet,” the actress recalled. “Ever since that, my mom carried on this tradition of every year, for a birthday or a special occasion, I get a Tiffany charm to go on that bracelet. It’s completely filled with all these memories, which is what Tiffany represents. When you get that little blue box it means that someone you have a special connection with is giving you something that you’re going to have forever.”

Elle’s latest animated movie, Leap! (formerly known as Ballerina) has a new release date… again. It had been moved to Labor Day weekend a while ago, and Deadline has just posted that it is now premiering on August 25 instead.

The Weinstein Co.’s animated feature, Leap! is changing dates yet again — this time moving up by five days to August 25. In this end-of-summer slot, the company still has horror film Polaroid for the weekend (which is likely to move now) as well as Tulip Fever (which also has jogged around the release schedule). Tulip Fever, which stars Academy Award winners Alicia Vikander, Judi Dench and Christoph Waltz, is getting a platform release.

Leap! not only has changed dates three times (the last time about four months ago), but the was re-voiced over the past few months and also put together a new soundtrack.

Along with music from Demi Lovato and Sia, the film also features new music from one of its stars, Carly Rae Jepsen. In addition to her already-released single “Cut to the Feeling,” the film will also features another new song from the “Call Me Maybe” singer titled “Runaways.”

“Our test screenings have been phenomenal – it was already great with Elle Fanning and Mel Brooks, but after adding Kate McKinnon and Nat Wolff, the scores went absolutely through the roof,” TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. “Carly Rae Jepsen’s song, ‘Cut to the Feeling,’ is going to be one of the top five songs of the summer, and we have incredible word-of-mouth, plus a partnership with Nickelodeon on the movie. We’re super excited about this.”

The song was released on May 26 digitally and didn’t crack the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released.
