Abigail Breslin will replace Elle Fanning - and Sofia Vassilieva is liklely to replace Dakota Fanning - the upcoming drama My Sister's Keeper.

Variety states Dakota Fanning balked at a request that she shave her head for the role; both sisters withdrew abruptly from the film.

Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine, Definitely, Maybe) will take over the role of a young girl who sues for emancipation from parents who conceived her as a genetic match so she could prolong the life of her ailing older sister. Vassilieva would play the older sister.

Cameron Diaz will portray the mother of the girls and Alec Baldwin the attorney who represents the child.
