Keira just can’t get enough period pics

Gorgeous British actress Keira Knightley (The Duchess) really needs to learn a thing or two about diversity. Not that her films aren’t good, but after playing tough girl roles for the most part of her early career, she’s now been churning out period drama after period drama at a seemingly frenetic pace.

The Oscar-nominated actress will now star in The Beautiful And The Damned, adapted from a novel by Francis Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby). Believed to be largely autobiographical, the story surrounds the love story of two writers in 1920s America.

The film will be directed by Nick Cassavetes (Alpha Dog) from a script adapted by newcomer Hanna Weg. Filming will start in April 2009.

Fun Fact: An Australian adaptation of The Beautiful And The Damned will premiere this October at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival.

One thought on “Keira just can’t get enough period pics

  1. Unfortunately, the Australian adaptation of The Beautiful and Damned screening at the Melbourne Underground Film Festival has been written and directed by Richard Wolstencroft who also runs the festival. Wolstencroft is notorious as director of two of the worst feature films ever made on Australian soil, Bloodlust and Pearls Before Swine. The modernised, “Dogma-style” The Beautiful and Damned is unlikely to be an improvement.
