Keira Knightley stars as patient-turned-psychiatrist Sabina Spielrein in David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method, which expands into theaters across the country this week. The film came out in limited release last Fall, and quickly earned notoriety for the racy sex scenes Keira shares with her hot costar Michael Fassbender, who plays Carl Jung. Yesterday, Keira spoke about working with both Michael and David. Keira shared excitement for the critical acclaim Michael’s earned for another daring performance in Shame, a movie she liked quite a bit. She also spoke about her other upcoming projects, Seeking a Friend at the End of the World, the directorial debut from Lorene Scafaria featuring Steve Carell, and a remake of Anna Karenina.

Keira Knightley is in talks to play the role of artists’ muse Effie Gray in period drama Untouched for Brazilian director Andrucha Waddington (House of Sand), reports Liza Foreman.
The project, which is being pre-sold at the AFM by Ealing Metro International from their new headquarters in the Loews Hotel’s fitness studio, follows the real-life love affair between this beautiful young woman, trapped in a “loveless,” unconsummated marriage to Brit art critic John Ruskin, and his protege, pre-Raphelite painter John Everett Millais. Knightley stars as a woman in the middle of another mentor-protege triangle in David Cronenberg’s upcoming A Dangerous Method (November 23), between Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen) and Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender).
The film is based on a script by Aleksandra Crapanzano. The producers are Barnaby Thompson (Easy Virtue), Lucia Seabra (The Last Summer of La Boyita), Maria Teresa Arida (Arbitrage) and Lauren Versel (Vamps). The project is part of Ealing Metro’s AFM slate which also includes the musical romantic comedy Goddess and The Account, an action thriller to be directed by Pete Travis.
A second film on the subject, written by Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise, was being sold at the market last year and was due to go into production mid-October with Dakota Fanning playing Effie. Some buyers were shown that promo at the AFM this year on an iPad.
Gray was born in Scotland and lived in Bowerswell, the house where Ruskin’s grandfather had killed himself. She was acquainted with Ruskin’s family from a young age. Ruskin wrote the fantasy novel, The King of Golden River for her when she was only twelve years old. Although he is said to have idolized her from a young age, he failed to consummate his marriage to her. The famous Victorian love triangle has been dramatized a number of times. Thompson’s project was held up by the fact that a playwright claimed that her script copied his play. Ealing is currently completing casting on the film.
Last night Keira walked the red carpet at the premiere of A Dangerous Method during the 55th BFI London Film Festival, over 100 pictures from the premiere can be seen in the gallery. Keira looked striking in a Roksanda Ilincic cross over dress.
David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method is screening at the BFI London Film Festival next week and all-too-slowly approaching its February 10, 2012 release. But just to keep you going in the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the UK quad for the film, featuring the slicked-back hair of Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightley and Michael Fassbender.
We’ve added two gorgeous new photoshoots of Keira to the gallery. Both of these sets were taken in September when Keira was in Toronto to promote ‘A Dangerous Method’ and we think you’ll agree that she looks stunning in both shoots. Enjoy!
