Movie News & Rumors: Keira Knightley and Matt Damon to star in Tender Is The Night?

Rumors are all over the web about a new period adaptation that Keira Knightley and Matt Damon are rumored to be in talks to star together in F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night...

Here's more info about it from The New York Magazine...
Keira Knightley's face is going to be all over the popular fiction table at Barnes and Noble. The actress — who has already appeared in adaptations of Pride & Prejudice and Ian McEwan's Atonement, and will soon star in adaptations of Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go and Claire Messud's The Emperor's Children— is said to be the front-runner to play the female lead in a film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender Is the Night, a novel about a marriage disintegrating in the South of France. Matt Damon (fifteen years Knightley's senior, for those keeping track of age differences we're supposed to ignore at home) is the desired male lead. 
As there's only a script and no director attached, it&#…

In a new interview with the Independent, Knightley explains why she waived her normal fee to take part in this relatively obscure project.
Keira Knigthley in Maze(source: The Independent Film) "I loved the idea of doing something that was purely creative, weird and wonderful and not a commercial venture," she said. "Ideas were e-mailed and then developed at Stuart's studio over cupcakes and tea and under the skeleton of his dog and a film piece was decided on: a collision of our worlds."'Maze,' which was shot last year in true low-budget fashion (Knightley's…
