Thesps join Woods, Turner in Coppola pic

Kirsten Dunst and Josh Hartnett will star in the black comedy “The Virgin Suicides,” which is being produced by Francis Ford Coppola and directed by his daughter, Sofia.

The two young thesps join James Woods and Kathleen Turner in the ensemble pic.

“Virgin” is about an eclectic group of men who live in an affluent American suburb in the ’70s. Their lives are forever changed by their obsession with five doomed sisters. Dunst plays the female lead in the picture.

The pic — budgeted under $6 million — is a co-production between Coppola’s American Zoetrope and Chris Hanley’s Muse Prods.

Other producers are Hanley, Zoetrope’s Julie Costanza and Illusion Entertainment Group’s Dan Halsted.

“Virgin,” which was written by Sofia Coppola, is based on the novel by Jeffrey Eugenides. It begins shooting in Toronto July 6.

The busy Dunst stars in DreamWorks/Universal’s forthcoming event movie, “Small Soldiers,” and in Miramax/Alliance’s “Strike.” She next shoots New Line/Capella’s spoof “Dairy Queens,” after wrapping Phoenix Pictures’ comedy “Dick.”

Hartnett has wrapped roles in Dimension Films’ “Halloween: H20,” starring Jamie Lee Curtis, and “The Faculty,” written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Robert Rodriguez.

Both actors are repped by Iris Burton Agency’s Iris Burton.

Dunst is managed by TTA’s Jerry Kirsch and Marianne Leone, Hartnett by Nancy Kremer Management’s Nancy Kremer.

Hartnett’s deal was negotiated by David Webber at Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Deimer & Klein.
