Mary Shelley

First Look at Elle Fanning as Mary Shelley

It’s been almost 3 years in the making: We now, finally, can take a look at Elle Fanning as Mary Shelley, the author known for Frankenstein. The film, previously titled A Storm in the Stars, is now just Mary Shelley. 

Mary SHelley is based off of the dual biography, Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Her Daughter Mary Shelley by Charlotte Gordon and will “depict the relationship between the 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft and poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, which eventually led to young Mary penning Frankenstein.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will star Douglas Booth, Bel Powley, Maisie Williams, Joanne Froggatt and Tom Sturridge.
