Dunst to star in ‘Dick’ pic

Will play White House wanderer in Phoenix pic

Kirsten Dunst has signed to star in the Phoenix Pictures comedy “Dick,” set during the Richard Nixon era. Production will begin in Toronto in May.

“Dick” is being exec produced by Gale Anne Hurd (“Dante’s Peak” and Touchstone’s “Armageddon”). Andrew Fleming (“The Craft,” “Threesome”), who wrote the script, will direct.

Dunst will star as a high school girl who wanders off with a friend during a class field trip to the White House. The pair roam the halls, encountering various characters — including President Nixon himself.

The actress is appearing as a faux-Albanian refugee in Barry Levinson’s “Wag the Dog,” another political comedy. Other acting credits include “Interview With the Vampire,” “Jumanji” and “Little Women.” She’s also starring in this summer’s Universal/DreamWorks “Small Soldiers” and Miramax’s “Hairy Bird.”

She is repped by manager Jerry Kirsch and the Iris Burton Agency.
