Ben Foster Replaces Mark Ruffalo In 'Red Light Winter' With Kirsten Dunst

It looks like we'll have to wait for our "Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind" reunion between Kirsten Dunst and Mark Ruffalo. But for writer/director Adam Rapp, he's likely glad that though he's lost one great actor from his film, an equally great replacement has stepped up.

Ben Foster has replaced Ruffalo in the upcoming drama "Red Light Winter," with previously attached Billy Crudup also exiting. Based on the play by Rapp (a writer for "The L Word" and "In Treatment"; director of "Winter Passing"), the film centers on two thirty-something New Yorkers who go to Amsterdam to rekindle their friendship and get away from the break-ups and illnesses that have taken over the lives, only to have everything turned upside down when they enter a love triangle with a Red Light district prostitute (Dunst). Foster will play an anxious emerging writer, with Crudup's substitute yet to be found.

Super producer Scott Rudin is putting his skills behind the scenes of this one with Katherine Waterston ("Being Flynn," "Robot And Frank") also joining the flick as another woman who gets caught up with the two men. The filmmakers are aiming for a December or January start, so here's hoping this comes together, as it sounds like it has a lot of potential. [Variety]
