Spiderman actress Kirsten Dunst will replace Spanish beauty Penelope Cruz as the leading lady of the sci-fi drama, Melancholia. The film has been directed and written by Lars von Trier, who had earlier grabbed headlines with his provocative film Antichrist, reported Ace Showbiz.

Cruz was negotiating for the part but she eventually dropped it allegedly to star opposite Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The shoot for Melancholia is scheduled to start in Sweden this July.
