Dunst Is Going to Iraq for Paramount

The lovely Ms. Kirsten Dunst has been signed by Paramount to star in a true-life story that ended in tragedy. The actress will play American relief worker Marla Ruzicka, a young woman who was killed in Iraq by a suicide bomber.

According to Variety, "Studio and the producers made a deal last summer for Ruzicka's life rights, as well as a book that's being written about her by Jennifer Abrahamson. Abrahamson had planned to collaborate on the book with Ruzicka, and they had turned out a number of pages that were going to serve as a book proposal.

Ruzicka was a dynamo in her quest to get reparations for the scores of civilian casualties after the Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, compiling lists of war victims and seeking compensation and medical treatment from the U.S. government. The org she founded, the Campaign for Innocent Victims of Conflict, raised $28 million to assist casualties of war in those countries.

Ruzicka and her driver were killed in April when a suicide bomber crashed into a security convoy they were trailing."

You have to wait for this movie. She just signed with the movie, so it'll be a long while until the movie actually comes out.
