Spiderman 3 Actress Kirsten Dunst is to make her
directorial debut this summer. The 25-year-old will helm a ghost
story she is writing herself, based on a letter sent in to Glamour
magazine by a reader. Kirsten said: "I'm directing my first short
this summer. It's a ghost story. They're totally giving me carte
blanche. I pick the letter. I write my script. I pick everyone I
want to collaborate with, it's great."
The film will be part of the Reel Moments series, a project run
by Glamour magazine which showcases short films made by women based
on readers' stories. Previous contributors include Jennifer Aniston
and Robin Wright Penn.
Kirsten - who has been acting since she was seven-years-old and
recently enrolled at an art school - is aiming high with her latest
venture. She said: "I've always been a fan of Roman Polanski and,
you know, 'Repulsion' with Catherine Deneuve and 'Rosemary's Baby'.
We just don't make movies like that any more."
