Keira Knightley


The co-star of Johnny Depp in 'Pirates of the Caribbean' trilogy has been signed to star in the Shakespeare's adaptation film 'King Lear'.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" beauty Keira Knightley has another role to tackle. After playing the adored Duchess of Devonshire in "The Duchess", the 23-year-old actress is going to take another noble role as a King's daughter in Shakespearean tragedy's adaptation "King Lear".

In the movie, the acclaimed actress has been tapped to play Cordelia, the King's youngest daughter. It means that she will work side-by-side with Anthony Hopkins, who takes the King's role, and Gwyneth Paltrow, who is going to depict Regan, the King's deceitful middle daughter.

The making of the adaptation film was done at the Cannes Film Festival. Allegedly, the film is budgeted for $35 million and will have epic battle sequences in it.
