Here’s another title for your watch-for-the-film file: The Bell Jar. Actor Kirsten Dunst will direct Dakota Fanning in the production, scheduled to begin in early 2017. This will be Dunst’s debut as a director, but The Bell Jar, written by Sylvia Plath under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas, has been seen on screen before: in 1979, starring Marilyn Hassett and Julie Harris, and in the 2003 biographical drama, “Sylvia,” starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Daniel Craig, Jared Harris, and Michael Gambon.
