And you thought Dakota Fanning was scary before.
According to Variety, Fanning will take one of the leads in the super-powered thriller "Push," opposite Chris Evans, Camilla Belle and Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou.
The film reportedly focuses on a group of American ex-pats in Hong Kong. Since they're also sheltering telekinetic and clairvoyant powers, the government is after them.
Paul McGuigan ("Lucky Number Slevin") is directing the film, which will be financed through Summit Entertainment, Icon Prods. and Infinity Features and based on the script by David Bourla.
Shooting will take place in Hong Kong this fall with an eye to a 2008 release, distributed by Summit.
Thirteen-year-old wunderkind Fanning previously exhibited some special gifts in the miniseries "Taken," while she was most recently seen in "Charlotte's Web" and, if you happened to be at Sundance, the controversial "Hounddog."
Evans and Hounsou also know a few things about superheroes from their work on the "Fantastic Four" films and "Constantine" respectively.
Belle is familiar from the "When a Stranger Calls" remake, as well as Roland Emmerich's upcoming "10,000 B.C."
