Keira Knightley, No Bodice


In other news, Keira Knightley will also be appearing in a new film in which she is not decked out in period gear. To be fair, 9 out of Keira's 25 full-length, feature films have been contemporary roles, but the remaining 16, as well as her biggest hitters, have been period films. Not that they don't suit her.

In Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Keira Knightley teams up with Steve Carrell to play neighbours on a road trip as an asteroid approaches earth. On the more serious side of comedy, then. Steve & Keira are an odd pairing that could bear dividends, or fall flat. Keira's comic abilities remain untested, but Carrell is pretty good at combining comedy & drama. An interesting outing for both stars, then. Let's hope for the best.
