The screenplay for the film, which is called "Houndog," contains one scene in which Fanning's character is raped, another where the character is forced to perform oral sex on a horse and several other scenes in which the character appears naked or wearing only "underpants."
A source close to the situation told the New York Daily News, "The two taboos in Hollywood are child abuse and the sexing of animals. In this movie, both things happen."
Agent Joy Osbrink tells the New York Daily News that "It's not just the rape scene - the whole story is challenging Dakota as an actress. And I've never been so proud of her in my life. I've seen the dailies, and in every scene she gets better and better."

Harry Potter too... wtf is going on?
"Radcliffe, 17, has officially signed on to play the protagonist role of Alan Strang in a staged production of Peter Shaffer's controversial psychodrama "Equus". The show is set to run in London's West End next year. For those of you who neglected your literature studies in college, "Equus" is the story of a young man who undergoes psychiatric analysis after inexplicably blinding six horses with a metal spike. The play?s controversy most often stems from a scene in which Alan reaches the height of sexual ecstasy while riding naked on the back of a horse."
