Kirsten Dunst for The Bachelorette

May 3rd, 2011

Kirsten Dunst is set to star in an indie comedy being produced by Will Ferrell.

The 'Spiderman' actress is attached to the project - which currently has the working title of 'The Bachelorette' - alongside Lizzy Caplan, Adam Scott and Casey Wilson.

Produced by Will and his Gary Sanchez Productions partner Adam McKay, the movie will tell the story of three best friends who are invited to act as bridesmaids at the wedding of a girl they nicknamed 'Pigface' at school.

Kirsten, 29, will play one of the best friends and her two-faced character has been described as "crisp and severe".

Lizzy will portray another friend in the group - who is described as having "a Playboy bunny body with a Larry David brain" - and Casey will be the bride.

Meanwhile, producers are still in the process of casting the third best friend but Adam will portray Lizzy's character's high school crush, who turns up at the wedding with a stunning - and much younger - date.

The project - which will be a directorial debut by Leslye Headland, who wrote the script - is in the process of being financed and is said to have a modest budget of around $3 million.
