As I've previously posted here last year, The casting of Miss Knightley (FYI: she said in one of her interviews that she has a small part in this movie) was first reported in Baz Bamigboye’s column in the Daily Mail.
From Baz Bamigboye of Daily Mail:
Keira Knightley, who quietly joined the cast of the epic film Everest (shot in 3D and IMAX 3D), and portrays Jan Arnold, widow of climber Rob Hall, who conquered the mountain five times.
The movie is about two rival expeditions caught in a blizzard.
Keira shot most of her scenes at Pinewood and around the Home Counties.
Other cast members, including Jason Clarke who played Hall, filmed in Nepal and the Italian Alps. The movie, which is in post-production, also features Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal.
Keira was wooed onto the project by Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, who run Working Title. They’ve worked with her before on Pride And Prejudice, Atonement and Anna Karenina.
