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."
