Keira Knightley to play title character in Tolstoy epic 'Anna Karenina'
London, Sept 10 (ANI): Keira Knightley will be playing the role of Anna Karenina in a new adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel by Joe Wright.
The 26-year-old will be working in collaboration with Wright for the third time, one of which was for her Oscar-nominated role as Elizabeth Bennet in 'Pride and Prejudice', the Telegraph reported.
Jude Law will be playing Anna's husband Aleksei Karenin, and Aaron Johnson will play her lover Count Vronsky in what has been cited as one of Leo Tolstoy's greatest works of fiction, and one of the greatest love stories of all time.
Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Emily Watson, and Olivia Williams will also be starring in the movie. (ANI)
