The New Line Cinema pic is being directed by Nick Cassavetes, and is an adaptation of the Jodi Picoult novel of the same name.

The movie tells the story of a young girl, played by Elle, who sues for emancipation from her parents who conceived her as a genetic match with the hope she could prolong her cancer-ridden sister’s life.

Jeremy Leven penned the script for the movie, reports Variety.

Mark Johnson will produce with work on the pic scheduled to start in March in Los Angeles.

‘My Sister’s Keeper’ will be the first time Dakota and Elle appear in scenes together in a film. They appeared in “I Am Sam” but not together.

Dakota Fanning recently completed the ensemble drama “Winged Creatures” with Kate Beckinsale and Forest Whitaker and is in Hong Kong shooting “Push,” a Paul McGuigan-directed drama with Chris Evans and Djimon Honsou.

Elle Fanning recently completed “Benjamin Button” and the indie drama “Phoebe in Wonderland,” and she just completed “Nutcracker: The Untold Story,” in which she has the starring role. (ANI)
