Cool girl actress Kristen Dunst turns director/co-writer for the popular 1960’s coming of age novel The Bell Jar. It will be her debut as a director on a feature film. We trust she will have a solid take since she has had much experience with the stylish teen angst genre with movies like The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette.
Dakota Fanning is said to have been signed on as the lead Esther Greenwood. Production has been set to start early 2017.
