Kirsten Dunst is in final negotiations to replace Elisabeth Moss in Jane Campion's new Netflix film "The Power of the Dog" which co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch. Moss was forced to drop out of the movie due to scheduling conflicts with her Hulu series "The Handmaid's Tale".
Netflix has acquired the project from See-Saw Films' inhouse sales arm, Cross City Films. It is slated to release in 2021 on the streaming platform and also in theatres.
The project has been adapted from the 1967 Thomas Savage novel of the same name. It follows two wealthy brothers with opposite traits.
Paul Dano portrays a man who is attentive and gentle while his brother, played by Cumberbatch, is brilliant and cruel. They are joint owners of the biggest ranch in Montana Valley.
