to the heroine Elle Fanning
The genius has been following the career of the actress for a very long time and has always been her big fan. Fanning herself is not fond of games and is not familiar with the industry in general.
Elle Fanning was a guest on Hideo Kojima’s Brain Structure podcast, during which Genius and the actress discussed how they met and what role she was given in Death Stranding 2.
As it turns out, Kojima-san has always been a big Fanning fan and has been following her career since she was very young.
The genius immediately wanted to bring the actress to work on Death Stranding 2. With this he was helped by director Nicolas Winding Refn, who not only collaborated with Kojima on the original Death Stranding, but also authored the thriller Neon Demon, where Elle Fanning plays the main role .
Nick contacted me and said that Hideo is his friend, a genius and that I simply have to take part in this project. After that, I wanted to be a part of it myself. I called Hideo on Zoom, heard some secrets, some history. I think it will be more than just a game,” says Fanning.
Jeff Keely, who was present on the podcast, noted that Kojima-san specifically wrote the plot of Death Stranding 2 for Fanning, and her heroine is assigned a central role.
