KEIRA KNIGHTLEY IN TALKS FOR CAROL PRODUCERS’ COLETTE

Actress Keira Knightley is in negotiations to star in biopic ‘Colette,’ to be produced by behind Number 9 Films and Killer Films.

‘Still Alice’ director Wash Westmoreland is helming the project, reported Deadline. Bold Films will also serve as producers.

“Keira is impeccably suited to step into the role of the iconic Colette in the early 1900s, who pushed the envelope in a time when women writers were shunned and bisexuality was scandalous. We are honoured to bring her story to the big screen,” said Bold Films’ chairman Michel Litvak

The film tells the life story of Colette, one of France’s leading female writers, who got married to Willy Gauthier-Villars, a celebrated Parisian wit, critic. Willy locked his wife up to write novels for him that went on to become huge best sellers, making him rich and famous. However, Colette rose out of the shadows to claim her rightful heritage.
