It could be a while before we get to see Elle Fanning in the next season of The Great, but she’s managed to get herself attached to the next game from one of the most celebrated game directors today.
As officially announced by Hideo Kojima, Fanning will be participating in the next game from Kojima Productions. Here’s the post:

We don’t have any official details for what the game would be, but some are already speculating that it could be Death Stranding 2, since Norman Reedus, the star of the first Death Stranding, had let it slip a few months ago that he’s already started work on the sequel.

One other game that KojiPro was said to be working on (but not officially confirmed) is something called Overdose, which is said to star another Death Stranding alum Margaret Qualley. Since fans are assuming that Qualley would be the lead of that project, it’s possible Fanning is attached to something else.
Then again, it’s possible that Fanning could be playing the lead villain of Overdose; pretty much like how they sold Mads Mikkelsen as the primary antagonist of Death Stranding. Though Fanning is best known for her more noble characters onscreen, I would love to have her play the villain for once—in a Hideo Kojima game, no less.
Until we get some more information, all we can really do is guess. If anything, Fanning is a phenomenal talent, and I can’t wait to see what she’s helping cook up with Kojima Productions.
