What’s going on with Jeff Nichols’ John Carpenter-esque “Midnight Special” you ask? Well, after being dated for November of this year, Warner Bros. pushed the film back to March 18, 2016. In a recent Nerdist podcast Kirsten revealed she will be in Austin, Texas with the film in March. The SXSW Film Festival runs from March 11-19, so it probably will makes its world premiere in Austin just a few days before its March 18th release.

The official announcement won’t come until 2016, probably sometime in February after the buzz around Sundance has quieted. However, Dunst also said she’ll likely be in Park City, but for a completely different reason. She revealed that is currently co-writing a 1950s-set screenplay based on a book (of which she will not reveal the title) that she hopes to make her feature-length directorial debut. Dunst has already directed two shorts, one that starred Winona Ryder called “Welcome” from 2007, and “Bastard” in 2010. Dunst wouldn’t reveal details on the book but suggested it wasn’t a piece of fiction or traditional narrative she was adapting. The project it still in early days and she will be in Sundance looking for financing. Listen the podcast:
