Movie News: Keira Knightley to star in film of King Lear

The Daily Telegraph reports that Keira Knightley has signed on to play Cordelia in a film version of Shakespeare's King Lear. The project was announced at the Cannes Film Festival today. Sir Anthony Hopkins will play the King while Gwyneth Paltrow will play her sister Regan, Lear's treacherous middle daughter. The role of the third and eldest sister, Goneril is yet to be cast. The $35m film will feature epic battle scenes according to its makers.

P&P Couple Sighting

Meanwhile, Keira and boyfriend/P&P co-star Rupert Friend with a gal pal enjoyed a sweet stroll along the River Seine in Paris, France on Sunday.

  1. Looks like a good upcoming film.

    Jeane, can I just repeat myself in saying, that they look alike again! I love it! :D

  2. Yeah, it sure does. It'll be nice to see Keira with with Gwyneth Paltrow and Anthony Hopkins on it.

    Speaking of Gwyneth, she and Keira both had done Jane Austen movies (Emma and P&P).

    LOL, yeah, you can repeat it here. I agree, they sure look alike ever since they started dating. :D
