Kirsten Dunst is ‘in’ for ‘Spider-Man 4’
A few weeks ago, news broke that Tobey Maguire and Sam Raimi would be strapping on their webslingers (err, maybe surgically outfitting their bodies with adhesive web goo is more like it) for yet another Spider-Man installment. Spider-Man 4 and 5 will be shot back-to-back, not unlike the latter (and lesser) two Matrix and Pirates of the Caribbean sequels. But what those films lacked making them inferior to their predecessors, Spider-Man has in spades… Kirsten Dunst!!
Alright, well, word is coming in that Ms. Dunst, whose been playing hot-and-cold with your friendly neighborhood franchise both on and off the screen, is "in" to reprise her role as Mary Jane Watson.
"I’m in," the actress told MTV News while promoting her upcoming film, How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
She was later asked to make the announcement official, to which she cryptically replied, "I’m not saying anything, I know there’s rumors…"
C’mon, Kirsten. Cat’s outta the bag. And the feline’s a feisty creature; once she’s out, you can’t put her back in. Either Kirsten Dunst is returning to play the fiery redhead one more time, or she’s just curb-stomped the collective hopes and fantasies of teenagers everywhere.
