Sleeping Beauty invited to Neil Gaiman’s party

Movie News

Elle Fanning (“Maleficent”) will star in Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of “How to talk to Girls at Parties”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

John Cameron Mitchell directs the film, based on a short story written by “Stardust” scribe Gaiman.

The short story, published in 2006, told of two teen boys who go to a party in 1970s London. While one has no trouble scoring a girl right off the bat, the shy one is left to fend for himself and has to find a way to make conversation. He soon finds out that the girls at the party are more than they seem. The story was nominated for a Hugo Award for best short story and won the Locus Award in the same category.

The script by Philippa Goslett and Mitchell turns Parites into more of a two-hander love story focusing on a schoolboy and ‎punk who uses music and art as a way to escape and a female alien tourist (Fanning) who wants to escape her tour group and explore the most dangerous place in the galaxy, the London suburb of Croydon.

Fanning, younger sister of “Twilight” alum Dakota Fanning, has starred in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, “Super 8″, “Ginger and Rosa”, “We Bought a Zoo”, and “Maleficent” – which has so far pocketed $623 million worldwide.
