Variety reports that Jesse Eisenberg is in talks to replace Paul Dano in Night Moves, the latest socially conscious project from the Utne Reader of independent filmmakers, Kelly Reichardt (Old Joy, Wendy And Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff). Unrelated to the 1975 Arthur Penn movie (or the 1976 Bob Seger album), Night Moves will also star Peter Sarsgaard as an environmentalist bomb-maker involved in Eisenberg's plot to blow up a dam. Dakota Fanning is also in talks to play the young rich girl who funds the entire enterprise. The movie is due to start shooting in October—just in time to cash in on the burgeoning trend of eco-terrorist movies coming around the bend.
