Wright not on My Fair Lady
Joe Wright has revealed that he's not on a remake of My Fair Lady as we were led to believe and in fact he turned down the offer rather flatly, he was never even involved in any discussion of casting with Keira Knightley.
So that leaves My Fair Lady out in the cold, and the newspaper who raised the rumour with egg on their face, and many sites rather fed up of all these made up rumours, but just a little too scared that they might miss the actual story. I admit I feel like that sometimes.
He said it was all lies. He'd been asked about it and said no, and the whole process ran for a couple of days.
So there's no Joe Wright on the project, but who is? It's obvious the project is going forward, and is Knightley really on the project?
I wish the remake wasn't happening at all, but since they are, isn't it right that it should be modernised rather than just remaking the original in the same time period?
