    Keira Knightley to star in SILK

    Keira Knightley to Star in Silk
    December 20, 2005 has confirmed with Keira Knightley's agent that the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and Pride & Prejudice star will play Helene in a movie adaptation of Alessandro Baricco's bestselling novel Silk:

    It is the story of a married silkworm smuggler, Herve Joncour, in 19th Century France who travels to Japan to collect his clandestine cargo. While there he spots a beautiful European woman, the concubine of a local baron, with whom he becomes obsessed. Without speaking the same language, they communicate through letters until war intervenes. Their unrequited love persists however, and Herve's wife Helene begins to suspect.

    The movie will be directed by Francois Girard (The Red Violin) who has adapted the screenplay after a first draft by Baricco himself. Filming is set to start in the Spring of 2006 when Keira will be all but finished recording the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels. Michael Pitt (The Last Days) is a possible for the role of Joncour.

    Knightley will next be seen on-screen in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, which hits July 7.

    I love this woman and I don't care what she does. ::swoon::
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.
