Is Kirsten Dunst Ready for This?

The actress is about to do something very new and different.

Kirsten Dunst has been in the entertainment industry since birth. Okay, perhaps not that long . . . but pretty darn close. When she was just 12 years old, she gained worldwide recognition for her work in Interview with the Vampire. Noted for holding her own opposite Hollywood A-listers Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, the actress was quickly thrust into stardom and never looked back.

And while she's no stranger to film and television roles, she's about to start a new project that will take her out of her comfort zone. Can she succeed?

When you think of Kirsten Dunst, a long list of films most likely come to mind, films that may include Bring It On, Crazy/Beautiful, Spider-Man (and its sequels), and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. You may even consider her latest project, FX's Fargo, for which she earned a Primetime Emmy Award nomination.

However, soon, you'll know her for a new a film . . . a film that she's not starring in, but directing.

That's right, the famous star will be making her directing debut in early 2017 with The Bell Jar, an adaptation of Sylvia Plath's novel of the same name. Set to star is Dakota Fanning and Academy Award-winning actress Patricia Arquette.

The only book to ever be published by Plath, who committed suicide in 1963, tells the story of a young girl who takes an internship at a New York magazine, and then later suffers a mental breakdown. Dunst helped adapt the script, and will also executive produce.

Do you have any doubt that Dunst will have trouble succeeding from her position behind the camera? We don't! Sure, this may be a brand new role for the actress, but she's been on film sets since she was a little girl. If you think about it, the entertainment industry is all she knows - she grew up in it. We're positive her directorial debut will be a big hit!
