Looks like Kirsten Dunst is back on track to shoot ”Wimbledon,” a romantic comedy that will pair her with ”A Beautiful Mind”’s Paul Bettany as two professional tennis players who redefine the word ”love.” The Associated Press reports that director Richard Loncraine (HBO’s ”The Gathering Storm”) will begin filming during this year’s tournament in late June and early July and continue shooting afterward on location in London.

Dunst started preparing for the role a year ago, watching last year’s tournament live from the royal box, but her participation was uncertain, since she first had to disentangle herself from another net, the one spun by ”Spider-Man 2.” But that film, currently shooting in New York, is expected to wrap in time for her to have her day in court.
