John / October 29th, 2011

Kirsten Dunst & Orlando Bloom have joined Clive Owen & Anil Kapoor in acclaimed director/writer Roger Donaldson’s next directing project titled Cities.

The international thriller is being produced by Matthew Metcalfe (Dean Spanley, Love Birds) & 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 & New York.

Cities reunites Dunst & 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 & appeared in Spider-Man 1, 2 & 3 opposite Tobey Maguire. Her additional credits include Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides & Marie Antoinette as well as Bring It On, Little Women & the romantic comedy Wimbledon.

Bloom is currently filming Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey marking the fourth time the film director & 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 & 3 & 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 & money & their impact on our every day lives surround us constantly & 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 & ambition that takes place in the exuberant months leading up to the Dow Jones all-time stock market high. Fortunes, both big & 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 & 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 & 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 & structure the financing, & will represent domestic rights with CAA.

Academy Award nominee & 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 & 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 & Sin City. His current films include The Killer Elite opposite Jason Statham & Robert De Niro & Intruders for Universal Pictures.

Slumdog Millionaire star Anil Kapoor is one of India’s most famous & 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 & 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 & Cocktail. Donaldson both wrote & directed the acclaimed film The World’s Fastest Indian starring Anthony Hopkins.

Dunst is repped by UTA & Bloom by CAA.
