Through a soccer drama "Bend it Like Beckham", Keira Knightley makes her name noted in the movie biz and since playing the role of Governor daughter turned pirate Elizabeth Swann in the blockbuster Disney trilogy "Pirates of the Caribbean", she has morphed her characters into subtler ladies. Following her acclaimed performance in "Atonement", she has appeared in various movies that require her to go above and beyond. Now, the 23-year-old actress is about to tackle another challenging role requiring her to show more of her feminine side.

In the latest news about "The Duchess" star, it is reported that Knightley is in negotiations to land a role of Eliza Doolittle, once made famous by the one and only Audrey Hepburn, in the newest version of "My Fair Lady". As Doolitle, the Academy Award-nominated actress is expected to present a Cockney flower girl who is transformed into a lady under the guidance of arrogant Professor Henry Higgins, who later falls in love with her. Since the talks are still in process, confirmation words on whether or not Knightley nails the part won't be outed for awhile.

Recently, the filmmaker comes out to confront the speculation stating that he hasn't made any decision about it.

To the reporters in Century City, California, on June 5, the 48-year-old admitted that he is still waiting to read the James Vanderbilt's script for "Spider-Man 4" insisting that though he is excited with the new superhero project, he won't quickly decide on returning to helm the fourth flick before he gets to see what to offer. "Right now James Vanderbilt is writing the script, and he's working on it, and I'm excited to read it," he explained. "I think it's going to be done in a few months. I'm hoping it's as great as our discussions were about it and hoping it feels right for me, because I love Spider-Man, and I'm hoping I'm well-enough rested to, like, really embrace it and hoping that Sony wants me at that time to direct it. So if all those things come together, I would love, love to do it. But this is a lot of unknowns about the future."
