Dunst to Star in Iraq Film

Kirsten Dunst Kirsten Dunst will take the starring role in a picture chronicling the life and death of Marla Ruzicka according to andPop. Ruzicka was a humanitarian relief advocate who died in post-Gulf War II Iraq. She travelled there to help document and report the impact of the US invasion, specifically civilian casualties. She ended up dying from a blast caused by a suicide bomber.

This is bound to be a sad film that will introduce Dunst's character, make you fall in love with her, and then rip your heart out in the end. It's some serious, grown-up work for Dunst on the heels of "Elizabethtown" and the upcoming "Marie Antoinette." These may be the beginning of a trend for Dunst into more award winning ventures. --Terrence Ryan
