The story centers on three eco-terrorists who plan on blowing up a dam. Jesse Eisenberg will play the leader of the trio, and Dakota Fanning portrays the rich young woman who finances the operation. Peter Sarsgaard, who joined the project in October, plays the bomb maker. Paul Dano was originally attached for Jesse Eisenberg's role, although he is no longer involved in the project.
Kelly Reichardt will direct from her own screenplay, with Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani producing. Todd Haynes is expected to serve as executive producer.
Production is scheduled to begin this October in Portland, Oregon.
