Dunst signs up to Midnight Special
Kirsten Dunst has signed up to sci-fi drama Midnight Special.
The actress will join Michael Shannon and Joel Edgerton in the new project from Mud director Jeff Nichols, Variety reported.
Jeff has written the film himself, in which a father discovers his eight-year-old son has supernatural powers and the two go on the run from their enemies.
The modern sci-fi chase movie is the first major studio project for Jeff after his successful indie projects Take Shelter and Mud.
The project is expected to be going into production early next year.
