Keira in “Tender is the Night”

According to The Guardian, Keira has been offered a role in Tender is the Night alongside Matt Damon.

If last year’s Oscar-winning The Curious Case of Benjamin Button excised almost all trace of F Scott Fitzgerald’s short story from the final cut, fans of the celebrated author may find solace fin reports that his final novel now looks set to get the big-screen treatment.

Keira Knightley and Matt Damon are in talks to star in a new version of Tender Is the Night, according to the Padiba blog. Fitzgerald’s 1934 novel was previously filmed in 1962 with Jason Robards and Jennifer Jones as the rich but troubled couple Dick and Nicole Diver. It is set on the French Riveria, where the doctor and his wife live a seemingly idyllic existence that masks the dark heart of their relationship. The book was listed at No 28 on the 100 greatest novels of the 20th century by the Modern Library in 1998.

  1. Congratulations to her for Tender is the Night offer, this role seems pefect. The plot is reminding me of her performance in Doctor Zhivago.

  2. Keira Knightley is my favorite actress living today. F. Scott Fitzgerald is my favorite author of all time. When I heard a rumor a long time ago that Keira would be staring in a Fitzgerald adaptation, I was absolutely thrilled! But since time has passed, my eagerness to see this rumored film as grown immensely. Now I question if this rumor is true. So I am here on this fan page today to ask if the dream of my favorite actress playing a role in a story stirred up by my favorite author is true. If yes, what are the details and when should I expect to see it? If not, would Keira ever be interested in starring in a Fitzgerald story? I hope so. & warm wishes for Keira working on ‘Anna Karenina’ Keep making us proud!
