After breaking through internationally with 2011's "Miss Bala," Mexican filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo hasn't been in a big hurry to break into Hollywood. While earlier this year he replaced Joe Carnahan on the brewing "Death Wish" remake, his most recent work has been on the FX series "The Bridge," where he directed the pilot episode. But it looks like his next feature is brewing, and it's unsurprisingly one that will have a bit of grit to it.

After breaking through internationally with 2011's "Miss Bala," Mexican filmmaker Gerardo Naranjo hasn't been in a big hurry to break into Hollywood. While earlier this year he replaced Joe Carnahan on the brewing "Death Wish" remake, his most recent work has been on the FX series "The Bridge," where he directed the pilot episode. But it looks like his next feature is brewing, and it's unsurprisingly one that will have a bit of grit to it.

Dakota Fanning has boarded the filmmaker's English language feature debut, which doesn't seem to have a title just yet, but will combine a couple of our favourite things: road trips and music. The '80s-set story will find Fanning playing Viena, a roadie for a punk band as they travel across America, in "a journey of self-discovery and survival." Of course, Fanning has been on this kind of similar journey before (in her role as Cherie Currie in the somewhat underrated "Runaways"), only here it seems her character isn't on stage, but watching from the sidelines.

Production is slated to begin in February, and we'll certainly be eager to see how it all turns out and what other names might come on board. [Deadline]
