Movie News: Keira Knightley to star in "The Emperor's Children" with Eric Bana and Richard Gere

According to Digital Spy, Keira Knightley, Eric Bana and Richard Gere have signed up to star in The Emperor's Children, the new movie from Noah Baumbach (The Squid And The Whale).

Based on Claire Messud's 2006 novel, the dramedy centres on three Brown University alumni who are struggling with their personal and professional lives as they reach their 30s. Gere, who last appeared in Hachi: A Dog's Tale, will take on a supporting role, reports The Wrap.

Ron Howard and Brian Grazer are producing the movie, which will begin shooting this summer.

Knightley recently confirmed that she won't reprise her role as Elizabeth Swann in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

The Emperor's Children is expected to have a 2011 release.

Speaking of Keira (who is turning 25 this week, on Friday March 26th)...

She has a number of movie roles coming up, including a portrayal of writer Zelda Fitzgerald in biopic 'The Beautiful and the Damned' and David Cronenberg drama 'The Talking Cure' - in which Keira will play a character being treated by renowned psychologists Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. She's also going to be in 'London Boulevard' with Colin Ferrell, and 'Last Night' with Avatar's Sam Worthington and Eva Mendes.


  1. Keira Knightly is one of my favourite actresses, she deserves all tha fame and glory she has, because she can really interpret a vast range of roles, she really understands what it means to put yourself in the characters' shoes, to bring them to life. So I'm sure that due to her, "The Emperor's Children" will be as good as it possibly can be.
