Jim Sturgess cast in Upside Down

Kirsten Dunst is also in the sci-fi indie

Jim Sturgess will be searching a strange parallel universe to find lost love Kirsten Dunst in Upside Down.

According to Production Weekly, director Juan Diego Solanas is pairing the two actors up for his new alternate reality sci-fi indie pic.Dunst had apparently been in talks for a while, but Sturgess is a new twist, given that Emile Hirsch was being considered.

So what's the pitch? Slash Film dug this synopsis out of the European Film Market listing for the movie:

"Adam is a seemingly ordinary guy in a very extraordinary universe. He lives humbly trying to make ends meet, but his romantic spirit holds on to the memory of a girl he met once upon a time from another world, an inverted affluent world with its own gravity, directly above but beyond reach… a girl named Eve.

"Their childhood flirtation becomes an impossible love. But when he catches a glimpse of grown-up Eve on television, nothing will get in the way of getting her back…"

Sounds intriguing…
