Keira Knightley and Jude Law to Star in Anna Karenina

Keira Knightley and Jude Law Take on Tolstoy

There's been rumors of a big-screen adaptation of Anna Karenina flying around for awhile, but now it's official. Focus Features is taking on Tolstoy's iconic novel, with Keira Knightley and Jude Law set to star. The movie will be directed by Joe Wright, who previously worked with Knightley on Atonement and Pride and Prejudice; Tom Stoppard, the Oscar-winning scribe behind Shakespeare in Love, wrote the screenplay. This sounds like a team made in filmmaking heaven, so it sounds like the iconic story is in very capable hands. Fans of the book — how do you feel about the way the movie is coming together?

They seem a bit young for their roles and it looks like a challenge all around. Can she pull off such a soft womanly part and can Aaron Johnson pull off the dashing lover? we shall see

ugh, no, stop casting Kiera Knightly in every period drama! she is one of my least favorite actresses (she can only make one expression! and her weird mouth pout drives me crazy) and keeps ruining movie adaptations of all my favorite books

YES! First off, huge fan of anything Keira/Wright (Atonement and P&P<3) and this cast is shaping up wonderfully. You forgot to mention that Matthew Macfadyen (Mr. Darcy) will be in it (as Anna's brother). P&P reunion! Also the sexy as hell Aaron Johnson. Rumor is James McAvoy, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Saoirse Ronan all might be joining as well.
