Dakota Fanning is starring in the immigrant drama “Sweetness in the Belly,” which has begun shooting in Ireland and will continue in Ethiopia.

Zeresenay Berhane Mehari is directing from a script by Laura Phillips, adapted from Camilla Gibb’s bestselling novel that explores an immigrant’s life from the unique perspective of being orphaned in Africa as a child, escaping to England as a refugee, embracing the immigrant community in London, and attempting to reunite people with their scattered families — while dealing with a passionate lost love affair with a doctor.

Other cast members include Wunmi Mosaku and Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”). The project was unveiled at the 2017 Berlin Film Festival with Saoirse Ronan initially attached.

Berhane Mehari’s first feature film, “Difret,” was executive produced by Angelina Jolie and won the audience awards at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and in the panorama section of the Berlin Film Festival. – Variety

On the night of Monday, September 17, Dakota attended the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The actress dazzled on the red carpet in a pleated, mint green Dior gown and 175 carats of emeralds by Lorraine Schwartz.

Fanning’s TV show, The Alienist, had six Emmy nominations including Outstanding Limited Series.

The Alienist follows a newspaper illustrator, played by Luke Evans, who recruits a criminal psychologist, played by Daniel Bruhl, to help him catch a serial killer in New York during the 19th century. Fanning plays Sara Howard, a female police detective, who teams up with the two men. The TNT series premiered in January and has already been renewed for a second season.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dakota pointed out that her character’s equality struggles are shockingly relatable despite the time period.

“We see from the beginning harassment in the workplace, abuses of power in the workplace for my character who is the first female to work at the police department that isn’t just sweeping the floors,” she said.

“It’s been interesting over the past few months to see the sort of discussions that have been happening regarding women in the workplace and then to have done these scenes that are set so long ago that are almost weirdly carbon copied of an article that you could go read right now.”

Yesterday, Dakota attended jaeger-lecoultre hosts gala in the 75th venice film festival, and she was simply dazzling.

The actress, who was in Italy presenting her debut as director Hello Apartment, was the epitome of elegance in a delicate champagne-colored dress with botanical trims ranging from an asymmetrical neckline to a full skirt. The frock was from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika. Simple gold stilettos completed the ensemble with a small buff clutch. She styled her hair back sleekly with a sharp center part while keeping her face at a subdued glow.

The 75th annual Venice Film Festival is in full swing in Italy and this year marked a major milestone for Dakota Fanning.

Dress in white at the festival on Sunday, the actress was spotted heading out to attend a screening of her directorial debut, Hello Apartment.

Fanning’s short film, written by Liz Hannah, who co-wrote Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” is about a young woman’s life as revealed through her apartment. It stars Eve Hewson, Tom Sturridge and Christina Rouner.

Fanning has long been a friend of the fashion brand so when they approached her to make a short film, she was ready to jump on board.

“I’ve wanted to direct something for a long time, ever since I can remember. It’s the only other thing (besides acting) I’ve wanted to do,” she says. “They held a spot for me to direct. I was so scared, but I felt very safe doing it with Miu Miu and Mrs. (Miuccia) Prada. They are so supportive and creative. I feel so blessed that my first experience directing was filled with such freedom. I was able to tell whatever story I wanted how I wanted and they were just there to help me along the way.”

The story of “Hello Apartment” took on more poignancy for Fanning as she arrived in Venice on Saturday. She’d just moved out of her first apartment after seven years the day before. “I said goodbye to it for the last time yesterday; Goodbye apartment! I’m still feeling emotional about it,” she says. Fanning wanted to capture that feeling in her short. “It’s about how our memories are connected to the spaces that we experience them in. It was inspired by living in that apartment, becoming more independent as each year went by and becoming a young woman. I moved in at 17; I’m leaving at 24. I wanted to capture that feeling in the film.”

Finally, TNT confirmed that Dakota Fanning, Daniel Brühl and Luke Evans would return with their respective roles to a new season of The Alienist. The new season of the series, which will actually be a sequel will be titled “The Angel of Darkness”, inspired by the 1997 book by Caleb Carr.

Depending on when production starts, The Alienist could be returning in January 2019. And there are likely to be again 10 episodes in the forthcoming run.

  • Synopsis:

“A year after the events narrated in The Alienist, the cast of characters from that novel are again brought together to investigate a crime committed in the heady days of New York in the 1890s, but this time narrated by the orphan Stevie Taggert.

A young child, the daughter of Spanish diplomats, disappears. It seems she has been abducted but no ransom note is received and the detective Isaacson quickly discover that a nurse, Elspeth Hunter, is probably the kidnapper.

They also discover that Hunter has been a little too closely connected with the death of three other infants. But what are her motives? She married a fortune, and although she is connected to some fairly rough villains this crime does not fit their modus operandi.”
