Variety and THR are reporting that Keira is in talks to join Will Smith in Collateral Beauty. Smith is starring alongside Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Naomie Harris and Michael Pena, and will portray a successful New York advertising executive who experiences a personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, prompting his colleagues to devise a drastic plan to help him recover.
One of the movie’s conceit concerns actors playing walking embodiments of Love, Time, and Death. Knightley would play Love.
The movie will hit theaters on Dec. 16, 2017, putting it in prime position for an awards season run. Production will start next month in New York.
