Keira recently did an interview on The Andrew Marr show! She talks about her current role in The Misanthrope as well as some past projects and how she still isn’t used to the obtrusive press that follow her around (the main reason why we don’t post candids here at KKFan). Screen caps are in the gallery, view the video here.
The Daily Mail has announced today that Keira has pulled out of playing Eliza Doolittle in the big screen adaptation of My Fair Lady. According to the article Keira believed the project was taking too long to get off the ground and is busy with The Misanthrope. Apparently Carey Mulligan has now been approached to audition for the role.
Although strongly linked with the role (she had singing lessons and sang for Mackintosh), Keira was never officially offered the part. She is believed to have felt that the project was taking too long to get off the ground.
The Guardian has posted a bit more information on The Talking Cure! I did a little bit about Freud and Jung in college so I think this sounds really interesting!
The Talking Cure, based on the Christopher Hampton play of the same name, will star Knightley as Sabina Spielrein, a Russian-Jewish psychiatric patient, who is said to have inspired some of Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud’s most remarkable discoveries. Christoph Waltz and Michael Fassbender – who both featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds – are set to co-star, with Waltz as Freud, and Fassbender as Jung.
The unconfirmed Playlist report was triggered by a Facebook update by Australian distributor Hopscotch Films, suggesting that it had picked up rights to the film.
I have just come across this article which suggests that Keira, along with Christopher Waltz and Michael Fassbender, have signed onto a new movie called “The Talking Cure“.
British lovely Keira Knightley has joined the cast of David Cronenberg’s next film, The Talking Cure, marking the first project for the accliamed director since 2007’s Russian mob feature Eastern Promises. The Talking Cure will center on Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, the founders of psychoanalysis, and their relationship with patient Sabina Spielrein.
Remember this is just a rumor at the moment.
DVD screen captures from The Edge of Love have been added to the gallery. I really enjoyed Keira’s performance in this. One of her best! She and Sienna Miller are amazing in it.
