Toronto International Film Festival has published the released dates for their films. The Last of Robin Hood will be premiering on Friday September 6; and Night Moves September 8!
As the premiere of Night Moves approaches, new information of the film is being released. A new picture of Dakota; and the movie detailed synopsis have been released. Check it out!
NIGHT MOVES is the story of three radical environmentalists coming together to execute the most intense protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam—the very source and symbol of the energy sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise. Harmon is a former Marine, radicalized by tours of duty overseas. His life in the military is behind him, but at heart he remains the same reckless alpha male he always was, eager for adventure, excited by the prospect of mayhem and destruction. Dena is a high society dropout, sickened by the consumer economy into which she was born. She’s moved west and cut ties with her family, edging ever deeper into radical politics. And Josh, their leader, is a self-made militant, devoted to the protection of the Earth by any means necessary. A son of the middle class who works on an organic farm, he’s an intensely private person by nature and may have the deepest convictions of them all. NIGHT MOVES is a tale of suspense and a meditation on the consequences of political extremism. When do legitimate convictions truly demand illegal behaviors? What happens to a person’s political principles when they find their back against the wall?
It has been announced that The Last of Robin Hood will be having its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival! The schedule is yet to be announced, but this means will be having two films of Dakota at the festival! Hopefully this means 2x more pictures.
Also, the first pictures from The Last of Robin Hood and Night Moves have been released! Be sure to check them out in the gallery!

While on Sundance, Dakota talked about a new project she’s involved in; A film named Last of Robin Hood. The filming begins Feb 15th:
Dakota Fanning has been cast as Kevin Kline‘s teenage girlfriend in the true Hollywood pic The Last Of Robin Hood, which chronicles the final years of Errol Flynn‘s life with Kline portraying the swashbuckling screen icon. Quinceanera helmers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland scripted and will direct. Fanning will play teenage actress Beverly Aadland, who was 17-years-old and by Flynn’s side when he died at age 50 in 1959. Susan Sarandon is also attached as Florence Aadland, who wrote the 1961 book The Big Love accusing Flynn of starting a sexual relationship with her daughter when Beverly was 15, an allegation Beverly Aadland later confirmed to People.
