The movie will follow the last years of his life, spent alongside the very young Beverly Aadland. Fanning will play the 17-year-old dancer who met Hollywood icon Flynn in 1957, two years before his death.

Eternal seducer Errol Flynn, who had already been married three times, started his relationship with Beverly Aadland when she was only 15.

The secretive love story was the subject of a book named “The Big Love,” published in 1961 by Beverly’s mother, Florence Aadland. Played by Susan Sarandon, the role of Florence will be an important one in the film.

The biopic by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland will begin filming in February. — AFP/Relaxnews
