Dakota Fanning Joins "Last of Robin Hood"

Dakota Fanning is set to play Kevin Kline‘s teenage girlfriend in the true Hollywood story "The Last Of Robin Hood."

The film chronicles the final years of Tasmanian actor Errol Flynn‘s life with Kline portraying the swashbuckling screen icon.

Fanning will play 17 year-old actress Beverly Aadland, who was by Flynn’s side when he died at the age of 50 in 1959.

Susan Sarandon is also attached as Beverly's mother Florence who wrote the 1961 book "The Big Love" which accused Flynn of starting a sexual relationship with her then 15 year-old daughter Beverly. Beverly later confirmed the claims.

"Quinceanera" filmmakers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland penned the script and will direct. Christine Vachon and Pam Koffler will produce.
