Keira Knightley’s Going Cockney

Keira Knightley has some pretty big lace-up Victorian boots to fill, with the Atonement actress reportedly in talks to star in the remake of the iconic My Fair Lady, Variety reports.

The musical film made famous by iconic British actress Audrey Hepburn will retain the original score and is slated to be shot on location in London.

Columbia Pictures copresident Doug Belgrad said of the venture, “This update will preserve the magic of the musical while fleshing out the characters and bringing 1912 London to life in an authentic and exciting way.”

Hmmm. 1912 London? Not sure that will fly with today’s kids, but someone over at Columbia Pictures must have liked what they heard. On with the show!
