Kirsten Dunst could be wrapping up for A Red Light Winter alongside Mark Ruffalo and Billy Crudup.

The Melancholia star is set to share screen time with the two hunky actors in the big-screen adaptation of Adam Rapp's play, which will also be directed by the playwright.

"It's a play called A Red Light Winter and it's with me, Mark Ruffalo and Billy Crudup - and I get to play a prostitute," she told Thompson On Hollywood blog.

"It's a complex role but it'll be fun. I love Mark so much - he's such an awesome, giving and cool actor to work with. He's such a cool dude."

The play and upcoming indie drama focuses on two male friends who go to Amsterdam to rekindle their friendship and escape from personal troubles, but things change when they meet a prostitute (Kirsten).

Filming is scheduled to begin in January 2012.

Kirsten - who won the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her performance in Lars von Trier's Melancholia - will next star in sci-fi romance Upside Down opposite Jim Sturgess, Walter Salles' film of Jack Kerouac's On The Road and female-led comedy Bachelorette.

"I'm lucky right now. If I feel there is something that I am really drawn to, I would work and try to produce something, but I have found some good projects recently," she added.
