Kirsten Dunst has admitted that she is about to portray Blondie frontwoman Debbie Harry in a biopic Michel Gondry is supposed to direct.
From historical to a rather modern-day biopic, that's what Kirsten Dunst is up to. The actress herself spilled the bean that she indeed will play Deborah Harry, the frontwoman of new wave band Blondie, in a biopic of her which Michel Gondry is attached to direct.
Speculations on her taking the role have been circulated from some time, provoking various reactions among the moviegoers, including those showing signs of disapproval or questioning her capability to become the famed punk goddess of the 80's. On these, the actress appears to have quite a solid answer in turn.
"She (Harry) chose me, so anyone who disputes that choice can take it up with her," so she claimed as quoted by Variety.
Apart from Dunst's open statement about her involvement in the project, no further details have been revealed about it up to this time, so do stick with this site for more tidbits on the flick.
