Kirsten Dunst and Sofia Coppola Reunite for SECRET DOOR [Updated]

     April 24, 2011


Director Sofia Coppola is about to start work on her fifth feature film, titled Secret Door, which will establish a neat pattern: every other film stars Kirsten Dunst.  Dunst starred in Coppola’s debut The Virgin Suicides and movie three Marie Antoinette — American Zoetrope, the production company run by father Francis Ford Coppola, announced on Twitter [via The Playlist] that Dunst will join Secret Door:

Happy to announce that Kirsten Dunst has agreed to be in Sofia Coppola’s new film ‘Secret Door’. Script is still being finished. Stay tuned!

I enjoy all of Coppola’s previous films, though I think you could develop a Star Trek-style theory that the even ones are better, primarily because of the overwhelming quality of Bill Murray in Lost in Translation, secondarily because last year’s Somewhere > Marie Antoinette.  That silly combinatorics won’t keep me from being excited for Secret Door.  Hopefully, “Stay tuned!” means Zoetrope will reveal more on story or casting later in the week when Hollywood returns from Easter weekend.

Dunst will next be seen in Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia, which premieres at the Cannes Film Festival in May.  Recently, Dunst was part of the ensemble that adapted On the Road, and starred opposite Jim Sturgess in the romance Upside Down.
