The toughest part of this job is having to periodically search for pictures of Dakota Fanning (although it’s perfectly innocent, it just feels dirty when pictures from The Runaways pop up). I do this at both the risk of prosecution and having to sleep on the couch for you, dear reader. So please remember my sacrifice as you read this article.

The elder Fanning is joining The Motel Life opposite Emile Hirsch and her sister’s Somewhere co-star Stephen Dorff. In the film, Hirsch and Dorff star at brothers on the run after a deadly hit and run. There’s no word on who Fanning will play but I’ll take a stab in the dark and say jailbait hitchhiker who divides the pair. Now please excuse me while I clear my recent browsing history. (Variety)

Stephen Dorff has joined Emile Hirsch in The Motel Life. Story centers around two brothers who flee their Reno motel room after a deadly hit-and-run accident. Seems like something Stephen Dorff would do.

Y’know. Like, he likes these kinds of roles. Seems like a character he’d be interested in playing, is what I’m trying to say. I certainly wasn’t insinuating that Dorff would be involved in a hit-and-run accident. And definitely not one directly outside Bar Marmont that occurred between the hours of 2 and 3a.m. this morning.

The first piece of The Motel Life has been¬†identified. That piece would be Emile Hirsch, and what a fine piece he is. Producers Alan and Gabriel Polsky had stalled out on their film adaptation of Willy Vlautin’s novel, but the acquisition of Hirsch as one of the two leads is a promising start.

Perhaps not promising enough to make their ambitious schedule, which contemplates shooting this year, despite having a director, co-stars, or even a screenwriter on board. C’mon, Polsk brothers. Bust a move.

The Motel Life centers around two destitute brothers who flee their digs at a Reno motel after one drunkenly hits and kills a young teenager riding a bike. The two eventually return to Reno where they face judgment for their actions. The story is promising, and the casting of Hirsch appears to be a great fit, after seeing him play a similar hard-up character in Alpha Dog.

The project seems to be a ways from completion, so it’s difficult to presume how this project will play out, but the Polsky brothers have been hanging tight for a while, which suggests that they aren’t willing to turn this over to just anyone. Sorry, Brett Ratner. (Playlist)
