Dunst is Antoinette

08.12.2004

Kirsten Dunst and Jason Schwartzman will star in MARIE ANTOINETTE, the next film from writer/director Sofia Coppola. Dunst will star in the title role with Schwartzman (along with Sofia, a fellow Coppola) playing Louis XVI. Marie was the daughter of the Empress of Austria and married Louis (then Louis-Auguste) to confirm the alliance between France and Austria. They had a rocky marraige that culminated in both of their deaths during/following the French Revolution. She's perhaps best known for her quotation "Let them eat cake!" though it does seem to be in dispute whether Antoinette actually ever said that. Production is scheduled to begin this February in France for Columbia. In addition to Sofia and Schwartzman, big daddy Coppola is also involved, producing through his American Zoetrope production company. The project reunites Coppola and Dunst who worked together on THE VIRGIN SUICIDES. Dunst is currently in Kentucky filming Cameron Crowe's ELIZABETHTOWN and has WIMBLEDON set for release this September. Schwartzman can be seen later this year in both THE LIFE AQUATIC and I HEART HUCKABEE'S.
