Dakota Fanning to play Princess Margaret?!

Dakota Fanning will be practising her British accent in order to take on the role of a teenage Princess Margaret in Girls’ Night Out.

Girl’s Night Out will reportedly be based on true events surrounding the VE Day celebrations that took place on the 8th May 1945, when the then-teenage Margaret and Elizabeth were allowed out of the palace.

The script, which was written by Trevor De Silva, is said to feature to the romantic antics of the two girls, who ventured into the outside world in order to celebrate the end of the Second World War. The sisters were also the daughters of King George VI – the subject of the Oscar nominated film, The King’s Speech, starring Colin Firth.

Girls’ Night Out director, Michael Hoffman, has also worked with Firth on another of his upcoming films, a remake of the 1966 crime comedy Gambit.

No word yet on who might be cast as the teenage version of Elizabeth (that’s right, the Queen now!), but we can’t wait to find out what these two risky royals got up to in their younger days. We’ll keep you posted!
