Keira Knightley on Pirates and My Fair Lady

KeiraKnightley.jpgKeira Knightley has been talking about one role she's not planning on taking up again, and also about one she's hoping to play.

Yet again she is saying she's had enough of Pirates of the Caribbean, but My Fair Lady isn't moving quick enough for her.

Last September Keira Knightley said she didn't see herself starring in anymore Pirates of the Caribbean films. And it doesn't look like she is going to change her mind. She talked to Moviefone, through Cinematical.

It was a completely fantastic experience, and it was an amazingly large portion of my life, but I don't think I need to go there again. I think that it's done. But I'm very excited to see the next one.

I can't say I share her enthusiasm. I'm not a Pirates fan. One project she does seem excited about is the remake of My Fair Lady. Although she says she hasn't heard anything on it for quite a while.

I auditioned for it about two years ago, and I think it's been a matter of trying to assemble the correct team to do it that is going to make as interesting a movie and as good a movie as possible. There are good whispers going around, you know, and hopefully they'll come to fruition.

It was Summer last year that we heard she had been cast, so I guess they really are waiting for the right people. She doesn't know though if Danny Boyle will be directing, one of many films he has been linked with. I can't say I'll be falling over myself to go and see her in My Fair Lady, but then I'm not a big fan of her generally.

Are you glad she won't be in the next Pirates film? Are you looking forward to her starring in a musical?



I am not a Keira Knightley fan either Louise, maybe if she took some acting lessons, I may consider.

It's horrible the thought of her in My Fair Lady, I will choose Michelle Dockery over her, any time.

Ach she's not that bad, she has given some good roles. However the thought of her in My Fair Lady isn't a good one.

Why not get someone from the stage show? What about Martine McCutcheon? She'll be cheaper too.

Ach she's not that bad

But she's not that good either is she Rich? ;)

McCutcheon will not have that box office pull like Keira, which is why she was cast in the first place.

Oh obviously, but then why not just throw in the biggest superstar they can? That doesn't mean she's right for the role.

McCutcheon played her well on stage by all accounts, and look how well she did in Love Actually, I actually really liked her there and her character was similar in style don't you think?
