A new indie drama is in the works and one of the hottest on-the-rise actresses is pairing with an Academy Award nominee in what looks to be a promising project.

Elle Fanning, Vera Farmiga and Omari Hardwick ("Kick-Ass," "The A-Team") have joined "Pure Life," sources close to the production confirmed with The Playlist. Written by Melora Donoghue, the film will 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.

The film will be directed by Van Fischer who has a couple of indie features under his belt, including "Neo Ned" with Jeremy Renner. No confirmed start date just yet, but the production is aiming to go in front of cameras this spring. GigaPix, Blue Raven Films and Manolin Entertainment are producing.

    Well packaged movie.

    Sounds like a very difficult subject that only one as wise and talented as Donoghue could pull of.
