Elle has joined the cast of Clay Jeter’s sci-fi Film “Io“, a project that was developed at the Sundance Institute’s Writers Lab and Sundance Catalyst Forum.

Script Writers: Clay Jeter, Will Basanta, and Charles Spano.
Production Begins: Sometime in 2015.

The Film’s Plot:

“Sam (Elle Fanning), a teenage girl, is one of the last people on a post-cataclysmic Earth. With the final shuttle scheduled to leave the planet, she must decide whether to journey to the launch point and join the rest of humanity or remain on Earth, a castaway in the only home she has ever known.”

Quote From Clay Jeter On Elle’s Role:

“We are so excited for Elle to bring her charisma and fearlessness to the demanding role of the tragically obsessed idealist Sam,” said Jeter.

(Update: In October 2016, Margaret Qualley replaced Fanning in the film.)
