Kirsten Dunst dot Org » Blog Archive » Kirsten Set For A “Red Light Winter” With Mark Ruffalo & Billy Crudup

John / November 17th, 2011

We have to admit, this is one of those projects we’d been hearing about for a while, & being an indie production, it’s always hard to tell when these things will actually get off the ground. But when you have a guy like super producer Scott Rudin throwing his weight around, things get done, & moreover, big names can come into play. During the spring, Mark Ruffalo confirmed with us that he was taking a hard look at “Red Light Winter,” & now an actress who has been riding an incredible wave of buzz all year confirms that he is aboard & that she is coming along as well.

In a recent interview with Thompson On Hollywood, Kirsten Dunst revealed she would be joining Ruffalo & Billy Crudup in the drama. Based on the play by Adam Rapp (a writer for “The L Word” & “In Treatment”; director of “Winter Passing”), the film centers on two thirty-something New Yorkers who go to Amsterdam to rekindle their friendship and get away from the break-ups and illnesses that have taken over the lives, only to have everything change after a run-in with a Red Light district prostitute. We presume that Ruffalo & Crudup will be playing Matt & Davis, the two pals who cross paths with Dunst as Christina, the prostitute who comes between them. We’re also taking a wild guess that the story may have tweaked/transplanted the setting for its big screen incarnation.

At any rate, it’s an immensely promising project with three solid actors now onboard. Filming is slated to begin in January on this one & is yet another left turn for Dunst, whose upcoming slate is fascinating & includes Walter Salles’ “On the Road,” sci-fi romance “Upside Down” & the comedy “Bachelorette.” She’s clearly left Mary Jane Watson far, far behind.

I think we were the first website to mention Kirstens involvement with this project (The “Kirsten To Appear In Weird New Film With Mark Ruffalo & Billy Crudup” story we posted in late September). Adam Rapp, who wrote the play, will also be directing the film.

Hank the Cowdog
Podcast series
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Jesse Plemons
Hank the Cowdog, the self-declared "Head of Ranch Security," finds himself smack dab in the middle of a host of tangled mysteries and capers that span the universe of the Texas Panhandle cattle ranch Hank calls home. Hank is joined on these tail-wagging, tongue-slobbering adventures by a motley assemblage of characters, not least of which is his less-than trusty sidekick, Drover, a small but uncourageous mutt. Listen in as Hank the Cowdog always claims to know the answer, is the last to realize he doesn't, but is the first to run headlong into tales of courage, loyalty, and friendship.
