Mud Director Jeff Nichols Adds Kirsten Dunst to Midnight Special

Writer/director Jeff Nichols (MudTake ShelterShotgun Stories) recently cast Michael Shannon for a fourth straight collaboration in Midnight Special, about a dad and his young son hitting the road when some special powers turn up in the boy. Now Kirsten Dunst has come aboard in an unspecified role. She joins Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty). Maybe she'll have powers, too.
