Kirsten Dunst (Spiderman) is set to star in director Lars Von Trier’s (Antichrist) end-of-the-world sci-fi thriller Melancholia. She will go nude for the part and you can peep a glimpse of of that here.
Budgeted at a modest $7 million, Melancholia follows a group of people as they freak the fuck out upon discovering that the earth is on a collision course with another planet.
The film costars Keifer Sutherland, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Udo Kier, Charlotte Rampling, Alexander Skarsgaard, and Stellan Skarsgaard. Dunst replaces Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz in the role.
Melancholia will be released in Scandinavia in May. No word yet on when Magnolia Pictures plans to distribute the film in the U.S. and Canada.
