Dunst in a Gondry directed Blondie biopic?

kirsten dunst in a blondie biopic?Through deductive reasoning, our friends over at Film Ick have come up with what looks likely to be another new picture for director Michel Gondry. Kirsten Dunst was rumored to have been considering the role of Debbie Harry in a Blondie biopic since October. Now, in an interview featured in New Zealand website Stuff, Dunst mentioned that her next project was to be with Gondry, playing “a well-known singer….somebody who everybody knows, but I can’t say who it is.”

Dunst is no stranger to Gondry’s work, having appeared in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and was attached to join the cast of Be Kind Rewind, but changed her mind before shooting started in September.

If all pans out as it appears it should, a rock and roll biopic would provide the former music video director an opportunity to break out from his stretch of memory and brain-bending pictures – Sunshine, The Science of Sleep, and (next up) Be Kind Rewind – featuring Mos Def and Jack Black – re-shooting and re-creating accidentally erased videotapes of hits like Ghostbusters, Robocop, and Driving Miss Daisy for a senile video store customer. Also on his future project list: Master of Space and Time, an adaptation of the Rudy Rucker science fiction novel, with a script from Daniel Clowes (Ghost World, Art School Confidential).
