Knightley & Wright Remake “My Fair Lady”
Keira Knightley is reteaming with director Joe Wright (“Pride and Prejudice,” “Atonement”) on a remake of “My Fair Lady” reports Keira Web.
Knightley auditioned for the role last year and has already started her singing lessons for the project which actress Emma Thompson is adapting.
The script is expected to be more faithful to George Bernard Shaw’s original play “Pygmalion” than the 50’s Lerner & Loewe musical which served as the basis for the 1964 feature film.
Knightley herself is currently in Tbilisi visiting Rupert Friend who’s shooting the Renny Harlin-directed drama “Georgia” about last year’s Russia/Georgia conflict in South Ossetia.
