Lars Von Trier casts Kirsten Dunst for Melancholia

Kirsten Dunst in "Marie Antoinette" (2006)

"If you love Kirsten Dunst, be happy, because Lars von Trier has cast her in his psychological sci-fi disaster film Melancholia and it means she’ll be back on our screens.Kirsten Dunst Sitting Outside a Cafe in Montreal on

If you can’t stand her, be equally pleased... because he’ll probably do terrible things to his cast.

And what a cast – Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlotte Rampling, Udo Kier and not one Skarsgaard, but two, in the shape of Stellan and Alexander. Alexander Skarsgard

It’s almost as if von Trier threw darts at big list of names pinned to a wall, but it’s definitely an interesting bunch.With a budget of $7 million and a planned European shoot, it’s based on a script von Trier wrote but has yet to reveal many details about, beyond the fact that it deals with a variety of people trying to cope with the death of the planet. Oh, and he used the phrase “no more happy endings!” in a press release".
