With production now underway on the drama "Very Good Girls" starring Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen, a bunch of little updates about the film have emerged, including the complete cast and an intriguing choice to score the movie.

Naomi Foner, writer behind "Bee Season" and "Losing Isiah," penned the script and makes her directorial debut on the film that will tell the story of two lifelong best friends, both determined to lose their virginity as a rite of passage into the adult world. When they fall in love with the same boy, their quest threatens to tear their relationship apart. While recent weeks have revealed the additions of Richard Dreyfuss, Boyd Holbrook, Demi Moore and Peter Sarsgaard among the cast, the ensemble is additionally rounded out by Ellen Barkin, Clark Gregg and Kiernan Shipka. Holbrook is the boy in the middle of the two girls, with Moore/Drefuss as Olsen's parents, Barkin/Gregg as Fanning's parents with Shipka and Sarsgaard as Fanning's sister and boss respectively.

But perhaps even more intriguing, former Rilo Kiley frontwoman, and solo artist in her own right, Jenny Lewis will serve as composer and music supervisor on the film. It's a pretty nice move for a film that will clearly delve into the tough coming-of-age of two young women, to get a woman to provide the music as well. Lewis has written and sung her own fair share of love lost and found to acclaim over the years, and undoubtedly, her keen musical ear makes a great choice to help round out the additional tunes for the movie.

So far, this one is shaping up quite nicely. No release date yet for "Very Good Girls" but we'd reckon to keep your eyes peeled for 2013.
