Will Elle Fanning Appear in New Hideo Kojima Game?

Is actress Elle Fanning slated to be cast in a new project by Japanese game director Hideo Kojima?

That’s the tantalizing news being teased by Kojima Productions, which has a reputation for creative marketing stunts. This time, the tease came in the form of a two-part reveal at the Tokyo Games Show and the PAX convention in Australia.

Fanning’s role in the project–possibly in the horror genre–was hinted at via a QR code at PAX Australia, which led viewers to a website linked with Kojima Productions. On Friday, attendees at the gamefest were shown a tantalizing poster showing the outline of a woman’s face with the caption “Where am I?” The day before, Kojima had tweeted: “The answer to ‘WHO’ at TGS will be in the next ‘WHERE’.”

This would be Fanning’s first project with Kojima; the actress has links to him via director Nicholas Winding Refn.

But it would not be the first tease campaign by Kojima, such as his dramatic pronouncements around Metal Gear Solid 5 and P.T. The legendary gamesmaker is also busy working on a “completely new game” for Xbox, it has been reported. He also continues to work with Sony, which published Death Stranding on PlayStations 4 and 5.

The 24-year-old Mary Elle Fanning made her film debut at the age of three when she portrayed a younger version of her sister Dakota Fanning’s character in the film drama I Am Sam. She attracted widespread acclaim in 2011 for her starring role in Super 8, a science-fiction thriller by J. J. Abrams. Fanning is no stranger to the fantasy genre, having appeared as Princess Aurora in Maleficent (2014) and Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019). Most recently, she played the role of Michelle Carter in the Hulu miniseries The Girl from Plainville. She is slated to star in the upcoming film The Nightingale, alongside her sister Dakota.
