Dunst and Black to "Rewind" Together

by | May 18, 2006 | Comments

Not long ago we learned that director Michel Gondry and maniac Jack Black would be collaborating on a high-concept comedy called "Be Kind Rewind," and now it seems the boys have found their leading lady, and she comes in the form of Kirsten Dunst.

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Kirsten Dunst is in negotiations to join Jack Black in Michel Gondry’s "Be Kind Rewind." The move would reunite her with Gondry, who directed her in 2004’s "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." The story, by Gondry, follows a junkyard worker (Black) who attempts to sabotage a power plant that he believes is melting his brain. But his plan goes awry and the magnetic field he creates erases all of the videotapes in the local video store where his best friend works. Fearing that the mishap will cost his friend his job, the two team to keep the store’s only loyal customer — a little old lady with a tenuous grasp on reality — from realizing what has happened by re-creating and refilming every movie that she decides to rent."

I’m sorry, but this thing sounds hilarious already.
