Keira to play Anna Karenina

Keira Knightley and Jude Law are to star a new adaptation of Anna Karenina.

It's an epic romance based on a novel by Leo Tolstoy. Joe Wright will direct and Oscar winner Tom Stoppard will write the script.

Knightley will play a married woman who has an affair with a younger soldier, to be played by Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson. Law will play her husband, Aleksei Karenin.

The pair will begin filming later this month.

Keira has worked with Wright before on the war-time blockbuster Atonement and Pride & Prejudice.
