Actress Kirsten Durst is set to star in filmmaker Alex Garland’s upcoming film titled ‘Civil War’. According to Variety, Dunst will star alongside Wagner Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Cailee Spaeny in the action flick written and directed by Garland.
Aside from the fact that the film is set in a near-future America, plot details are being kept under wraps. In 2016, Garland received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay for “Ex Machina,” which also won an Oscar for its achievement in visual effects.
Garland followed the critically acclaimed film with 2018’s “Annihilation” and the FX series “Devs.” Her upcoming projects include “Men,” starring Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear, which A24 will release later this year. A24 will handle the film’s worldwide release and produce alongside DNA’s Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich and Gregory Goodman. DNA has previously teamed up with Garland for “Ex Machina,” “Annihilation,” and “Men.” Goodman’s past production credits include “Three Kings”, “8 Mile”, “Captain Phillips”, and “22 July”.
Dunst recently earned a SAG Award nomination for her critically acclaimed performance as Rose Gordon in Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.” During her career, Dunst has given notable performances in award-winning films including “Interview With the Vampire”, “Drop Dead Gorgeous”, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, “Hidden Figures”, “Marie Antoinette”, ‘Melancholia’, the ‘Spider-Man’ franchise and ‘The Virgin Suicides’, among many others.
In 2016, she received a Primetime Emmy nomination for her role as Peggy Blumquist in “Fargo.” (ANI)
