Star Trek XI‘s Anton Yelchin is in final negotiations for a role in Naomi Foner‘s Very Good Girls.
Actresses Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen are also in negotiation for starring roles in Very Good Girls, which is due to begin filming this June.
In Very Good Girls, two lifelong best friends (to be played by Fanning and Olsen if they sign) have just graduated high school and both are trying to lose their virginity as a “rite of passage into the adult world.”
But both friends fall in love with the same man (Yelchin) and their goal of losing their virginity “becomes more complicated and emotionally dangerous than they had ever imagined.”
“The film deals with female sexuality and friendship in a way we haven’t seen before,” said Foner. “These girls will be stunning young women in a couple of years, but they’ve struggled through high school with only each other. Most of us have been there. This is the summer where they finally get to touch real life.”
