Paramount sends Dunst to Iraq

Kirsten Dunst is back in business with Paramount Pictures, and this time her character will go much further than “Elizabethtown.” Dunst will play relief worker Marla Ruzicka in a film about the 28-year-old American relief worker who was killed in Iraq by a suicide bomber. Lorene Scafaria has been set to write the script. Marc Platt is producing with MTV Films. 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 organization 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.
