Kirsten Dunst: Not directing The Bell Jar adaptation anymore
Kirsten Dunst is no longer attached to direct the big-screen adaptation of Sylvia Plathâ€™s The Bell Jar. The 37-year-old actor, who was set to make her feature film directorial debut with the project, said the film had now changed hands. â€œI never owned (the rights), so it went away for me. It went to other hands. That's not in my hands anymore,â€ Dunst told an American entertainment magazine. However, a source close to the project has confirmed that Dakota Fanning is still involved in a version of the 1963 novel, currently in development as a Showtime limited series without Dunst.
