Three of Hollywood's freshest faces — Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Anthon Yelchin — are in final talks for lead roles in "Very Good Girls," which will mark the directing debut for longtime screenwriter Naomi Foner.
The coming-of-age story follows two lifelong best friends (Fanning and Olsen) during the summer after their high-school graduation when both girls are determined to become women by losing their V-cards before the leaves change.
It's all fun and games until the ladies fall for the same boy (Yelchin, in case that wasn't obvious) — at that point, it's less fun, and more… emotionally scarring. But hey, that's part of growing up too, right?
According to Deadline, this flick is a true passion project for Foner, who believes "The film deals with female sexuality and friendship in a way we haven't seen before." She explains, "These girls will be stunning young women in a couple of years, but they've struggled through high school with only each other. Most of us have been there. This is the summer where they finally get to touch real life."
That's a pretty solid sales pitch if you ask us, and with Fanning, Olsen and Yelchin (almost) on board, it's definitely on its way to being something very, very good.
