Two casting stories for two great actresses. First up, Deadline reports that Kirsten Dunst has landed the lead role in Lars von Trier's new film Melancholia. Dunst got the role when Penelope Cruz (first rumored in February) backed out to do Pirates of the Caribbean 4 instead. This is described as a "sci-fi disaster film" about a planet named Melancholia that "looms threateningly close to Earth." It will shoot July to September in Sweden. Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Alexander & Stellan Skarsgaard and Udo Kier are all in the cast. I'm quite excited to see a sci-fi film from the very controversial von Trier.
