While there have been a lot of child stars over the years who have failed to make the transition into grown up movie roles, eventually falling from grace and vanishing from the acting game, there are others who have pushed through and gone on to enjoy a long and successful career in Hollywood, putting themselves up there among the biggest and best names in the business.
Which brings us to the beautiful and talented actress Kirsten Dunst, who has been in the acting industry from a very young age indeed and is still going very strong, with plenty of top acting gigs to her name. Next up for Kirsten is the big screen adaptation of the hit book Hidden Figures, which is currently in the filming process and sounds like it could well be an interesting movie indeed.
Those of you who have read the book will be well aware of what to expect from the new movie but, for those of you who are not familiar with it, the Hidden Figures movie has been officially described as, "A team of African-American women provide NASA with important mathematical data needed to launch the program's first successful space missions."
While we have Kirsten Dunst as the big star Hollywood name in the new movie project, the film is full of plenty of other talented stars, including Octavia Spencer, Kevin Costner, Mahershala Ali, and Taraji P. Henson, among others. Allison Shroeder has adapted the screenplay for the movie, from the Margot Lee Shetterly book, with Theodore Melfi on directing duties for Hidden Figures, which is due to open on January 13, 2017.
