Elle Fanning-Naomi Watts Transgender Drama ‘Three Generations’ Gets Release Date

The Weinstein Co. has given an awards-season release date of September 18 for transgender drama “Three Generations,” starring Naomi Watts, Elle Fanning and Susan Sarandon.

TWC won the bidding at the Cannes Film Festival last month after buyers were shown a promo reel of the project, directed by Gaby Dellal from Nikole Beckwith’s script. TWC paid $6 million for U.S. rights with a minimum 500-screen commitment.

Fanning plays a New York teenager seeking to transition from female to male. Watts portrays her mother and Sarandon is her lesbian grandmother.

Producers are Big Beach’s Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf, along with Dorothy Berwin. Big Beach also financed “Three Generations.”
