In an effort to revive her (what I presumed was dead) career, Keira Knightley has signed on to star in an untitled, independent spy movie. In actuality her fifth project in development, the actress has seen her 2000s prowess fade, and seems to be in search of a well needed resurrection in Hollywood.
The film uses an original script from Camilla Blackett (Newsroom, New Girl), but is yet to find a director. Kimberley Steward and Josh Godfrey from K Period Media (Manchester by the Sea) will produce the pic, alongside Bristol Automotive’s Nora Grossman and Ido Ostrowsky (The Imitation Game), and Knightley herself.
Since appearing in Love, Actually and breaking big with the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Knightley has had few great projects. Now, however, she has some exciting ventures, including Berlin, I Love You (an all too familiar anthology of love stories), The Aftermath, and Colette, in which she plays the title character.
The untitled spy drama has lots of information yet to be announced, including a title, director, and plot details. Stay tuned.
