Ex Machina’s Alex Garland Is Teaming With Kirsten Dunst For New Movie

After becoming a huge name for playing Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-Man trilogy, Kirsten Dunst has primarily gravitated toward offbeat, independent films and that trend will continue with her next project. The actress has signed on to be in Alex Garland’s next film, the writer/director behind one of the best science fiction movies in recent memory, Ex Machina

Kirsten Dunst will be the lead in an upcoming movie called Civil War. No, it’s not a period piece, it’s reportedly an “action epic” set in near future America, per a press release. Along with Dunst’s casting, we know A24 is the studio behind the production. Alex Garland previously worked with A24 on Ex Machina and it became one of the early movies to not only put the studio on the map, but distinguish its particular flavor it now has a reputation for. 

As we’d expect from Alex Garland, further plot details are being hidden about Civil War, but also among the cast is Narcos’ Pablo Escobar actor Wagner Moura, Fences’ Stephen McKinley Henderson and Mare of Easttown’s Cailee Spaeny. Garland was nominated for Best Original Screenplay for Ex Machina at the Oscars and the film won for Best Achievement in Visual Effects.

After Garland awed audiences with Ex Machina, which CinemaBlend’s Eric Eisenberg gave five out of five stars in our review, he made his second feature in 2018 with Annihilation (Eisenberg was equally a big fan). Garland has since worked on the series Devs and his upcoming film is Men, another science fiction film from A24.
