Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom have joined Clive Owen and Anil Kapoor in acclaimed director/writer Roger Donaldson’s (THE BANK JOB, 13 DAYS) next directing project titled CITIES.
The international thriller is being produced by Matthew Metcalfe (DEAN SPANLEY, LOVE BIRDS) and Chris Curling (HANNIBAL RISING, THE LAST STATION).
Julie Christie, Eyeworks New Zealand CEO, will executive produce alongside Eyeworks New Zealand who will partner on the production. Lisa Wilson’s Parlay Films is handling international rights to the film that is set to lens in Spring 2012. The film will shoot in multiple cities that will include London, Mumbai and New York.
CITIES reunites Dunst and Bloom who first appeared together in Cameron Crowe’s indie comedy ELIZABETHTOWN in 2005. Kirsten Dunst joins the cast in the role of “Kate” alongside Clive Owen. Dunst most recently won the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her role in Lars von Trier’s MELANCHOLIA. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her supporting actress role in INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and appeared in SPIDER-MAN 1, 2 and 3 opposite Tobey Maguire. Her additional credits include Sofia Coppola’s VIRGIN SUICIDES and MARIE ANTOINETTE as well as BRING IT ON, LITTLE WOMEN and the romantic comedy WIMBLEDON.
Bloom is currently filming Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY marking the fourth time the film director and actor have worked together – Bloom also appeared in the blockbuster LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy. Bloom’s credits include the record breaking PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movies 1, 2 and 3 and he can currently be seen in the highly anticipated THE THREE MUSKETEERS.
“CITIES is very much a movie for our time,” states Donaldson. “The subjects of greed and money and their impact on our every day lives surround us constantly and CITIES is a movie that will explore this in a dramatic way with tension and excitement at every turn.”
CITIES is a cautionary tale about greed and ambition that takes place in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high. Fortunes, both big and small are put at risk as people around the globe gamble that the financial market’s meteoric rise will continue. In New York, a hedge fund manager (OWEN) has everything he wants – money, sex and power, but he wants more. In London, a young couple just want to buy their first home, but it seems impossibly out of reach. In Mumbai, a cop fights against corruption between property speculators and his villainous colleague Seth (KAPOOR). These stories will all dramatically collide in a world where the fortunes of individuals are interwoven with the lives of others across the globe they have never even met.
UTA’s Independent Film Group helped to package the film and structure the financing, and will represent domestic rights with CAA.
Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Clive Owen (DUPLICITY, INSIDE MAN, CHILDREN OF MEN, CLOSER) has risen to the top ranks of international superstar actors having been nominated for an Academy Award for CLOSER and winning a Golden Globe for the same role. His extensive credits include GOSFORD PARK, THE BOURNE IDENTITY, CHILDREN OF MEN, THE INSIDE JOB, THE INTERNATIONAL, DUPLICITY and SIN CITY. His current films include THE KILLER ELITE opposite Jason Statham and Robert De Niro and INTRUDERS for Universal Pictures.
SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE star Anil Kapoor is one of India’s most famous and beloved actors. In addition to a myriad of acclaimed local credits, Kapoor has also starred in 20th Century Fox Television’s award-winning TV series 24 and will next be seen in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE – GHOST PROTOCOL.
Roger Donaldson’s drama thriller JUSTICE aka HUNGRY RABBIT JUMPS starring Nicolas Cage, Guy Pearce and January Jones is set for release later this year. Working with some of the industry’s leading actors, Donaldson has directed over sixteen films including box office hits NO WAY OUT, THE RECRUIT, THIRTEEN DAYS, DANTE’S PEAK, THE BOUNTY, THE GETAWAY, THE BANK JOB, SPECIES and COCKTAIL. Donaldson both wrote and directed the acclaimed film THE WORLD’S FASTEST INDIAN starring Anthony Hopkins.

The last time I sat down with Kirsten Dunst, the 29-year-old actor had just returned to Los Angeles from Denmark, where she’d been filming Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, a two-part drama about the end of the world and the (unrelated) unraveling of a bride on her wedding night. It was October 2010, and Dunst was promoting the criminally underrated crime drama All Good Things. In the year that’s since passed, she’s released two films, filmed two others (Bachelorette, On The Road), bagged a bunch of trophies (including the Best Actress prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival), written a fairytale, and starred—with a lion—in a Bulgari campaign. Over cigarettes in a suite at New York’s Crosby Street Hotel, Dunst opens up about working with Alexander Skarsgård, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and von Trier, who might be even more inscrutable than people think.
BULLETT: When we last spoke almost a year ago, you pretty much refused to tell me anything about this movie.
KIRSTEN DUNST: I was afraid to! If someone told Lars that I’d said something, he’s the type of person who would probably be like, “I can’t believe you said that about me!” I was nervous about letting anything out because I didn’t want to be on anyone’s bad side during press.
In light of what’s happened, I really don’t think you need to worry about what you’re saying. [Laughter.] Lars has the tendency to write pieces of himself into his stories, and he shares your character’s struggle with depression. Did it ever feel as if you were playing a version of him?
He was never like, “You’re playing me so do this.” But he did write the story, and it is about his experience. I didn’t know how specific to his life the events were in the script, but in Cannes his wife said that watching me in certain scenes absolutely broke her. There were certain parts that she’d actually experienced and seeing me go through it in the movie, she said, “That was Lars.” I knew he suffered from depression, but I didn’t know to what extent. When I first met him, he was shaking like crazy.
