KIRSTEN DUNST IN JUAN DIEGO SOLANAS' NEW SF MOVIE "UPSIDE DOWN"?


According to "FirstShowingNet" Argentinian filmmaker Juan Diego Solanas is preparing a new alternate reality sf project "Upside Down". He has cast Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst to play in this project. This movie's quite twisted plot was described in "European Film Market" brochure in the following way:
Look up towards the sky and rub your eyes because you won't believe what you see: cities, forests, and oceans with their own inverted gravity, only an arm's length away, yet completely unreachable. Take a leap over to this alternate reality, two worlds – one above, one below - facing each other, and you'll land in the extraordinary world of "Upside Down", the new ground-breaking film of Juan Solanas. Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach… a girl named Eve. Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown-up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back… Not even the law or science!
I must say the plot is more than intriguing and promises a visually extraordinary movie, but I just can't seem to picture Dunst in this kind of role. It should've been some bigger actress, but let's give them a benefit of a doubt.

  1. It does sound intriguing. And why can't you Dez picture Dunst in a role of young girl in love, who later appears on TV (actress, presenter, journalist...)? It doesn't sound too demanding of a role to me. :) Any actress should be able to perform it.

  3. Only because it sounds like it would be a femme fatale type of role, and she isn't really that kind of actress.

  4. No, she's definitely not a femme fatale type. :) But, maybe it's not that kind of a role. We still don't know.
