EW reports that newlywed Keira Knightley is in talks to star in the upcoming dark comedy, Laggies, as Anne Hathaway’s replacement, and should she sign on she would appear onscreen opposite Chloe Grace Moretz, whose character is befriended by the grown-up Megan.
A change is in order for the cast of director Lynn Shelton’s (Your Sister’s Sister) upcoming dark comedy Laggies.
The story centers on a 28-year-old woman named Megan who is unable to
cope with the pressures brought on by her boyfriend’s recent marriage
proposal. In turn, she escapes into the comfort of adolescence by
befriending a group of high schoolers. Anne Hathaway was initially set to lead the film as Megan, but due to scheduling conflicts with Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi pic Interstellar, she has had to back out.
Keira has two upcoming films this year, the thriller Jack Ryan (with Chris Pine) out on Christmas Day and the indie Can a Song Save Your Life? (With Mark Ruffalo). Plus a short film about the fashion designer Coco Chanel titled, Once Upon A Time..., which premieres tomorrow.
