Talk about a dream pairing.

The Playlist is reporting that Elle Fanning and Vera Farmiga are teaming up for a new indie drama, entitled PURE LIFE. The film will also co-star Omari Hardwick, and is penned by Melora Donoghue. PURE LIFE will reportedly follow “13-year-old Maya Donovan (Fanning), who desperately wants a romance like the kind in the Brat Pack movies. Mired in poverty with her brutally hard-working and short-tempered mother Trisch (Farmiga), Maya goes looking for a teen romance and finds a bad boy she deems worthy of taking her virginity.”

Van Fischer will be directing the film, and will be shooting the film come this spring.

GigaPix, Blue Raven Films, and Manolin Entertainment are producing the film, but really anyone could be producing this project, and I’ll still be falling head over heels for this. I am a huge fan of both the main actresses here, particularly Farmiga, who has time and time again proven herself as a truly talented thespian. Fanning is a great addition here as well, in what should be one of the more interesting films to go into production.
