Juno Temple who has just wrapped filming in the US on Dirty Girl in which she played the title role, is now in negotiations to play the young queen in a new 3D version of the classic The Three Musketeers which is due to start shooting in September. Last year Juno could be seen in indie favourite Cracks and the star-studded Glorious 39.
In Dirty Girl, Juno plays Danielle, the high school tramp, who is sent to special ed class for one too many inappropriate comments during sex education lessons. There she meets Clarke (newcomer Jeremy Dozier), a shy, gay fat kid with no friends. forced together for a school project, they become unwilling and unfit parents to a bag of flour called “Joan”. Danielle is determined to get to LA to find her birth father, Clarke is desperate to escape being sent to military school by his homophobic dad, so he steals his car. With Joan along for the ride, the dysfunctional little family sets off for california with no money — forcing Clarke into performing his Flashdance routine at a gay strip club for the prize money. With a glorious 80’s soundtrack Dirty Girl is a joyful treat in the vein of Muriel’s Wedding or Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Juno will also be seen in two other completed projects - Kaboom (2010) and Goodnight Moon (2010), and is about to begin work on Jack & Diane.
