Juno Temple, Riley Keough, Cara Seymour, and Kylie Minogue star in the werewolf-inspired film directed by Bradley Rust Gray titled, Jack & Diane. If Keough’s name sounds familiar, it should. She is the late Elvis Presley’s granddaughter.
According to the film synopsis, Jack and Diane, two teenage girls, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane’s charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack’s tough skinned heart. But when Jack discovers that Diane is moving she pushes her away. Unable to grasp her new feelings, Diane’s emotions begin to cause unexplainable violent changes to her body. Through these awkward and insecure feelings, the two girls must struggle to turn their first love into an enduring one.
The 23-year-old Graceland offspring doesn’t credit her entire career to her family roots, but knows they definitely had something to do with its rapid fire succession. Keough (whose real first name is actually Danielle) told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s one of those things where it’s like if you’re going to do this job your personal life is going to be everyone’s business. I’m in a position where I’ve been really lucky, and I’m not going to act like that didn’t have anything to do with it. So you can’t be an asshole about it.”
Keough was last seen on the big screen in Magic Mike and will appear in the as-yet-unreleased Kiss of the Damned. She previously played opposite Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in the Joan Jett-inspired biopic The Runaways (Keough played the sister to Cherie Currie – Fanning). She also starred opposite Orlando Bloom in The Good Doctor.
Prior to launching her film career, Keough was a successful runway model with Dolce & Gabbana and Victoria’s Secret. She also appeared as the face of Christian Dior and in ads for Tommy Hilfiger and Lee jeans.
Magnolia Pictures has slated Jack & Diane for release on November 2, 2012 with a sneak peak On-Demand screening September 28, 2012. Find more information on both release dates here.
