There's nothing Kiera Knightley does better than an upper-class, uptight British lady. She has that signature pout and frail bone density to pull it off so convincingly. Luckily for her, one of the hottest scripts tipped to be a future screen hit has just the role for her as The Imitation Game begins production soon.
The film will star Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role as Alan Turing, the key WW2 figure who helped crack the enigma code and end the war. Directed by Headhunters' Morten Tyldum, Knightley is set to play a women from a conservative background who befriends the code-breaker. A period role involving conservative mannerisms, this means plenty of pursed lips and staring into the camera for Knightley in any case.
In other movie news, Kirsten Stewart also has a busy filming period coming up with more than two films on the books. According to Deadline, the Twilight star will film Camp X-Ray and Sils Maria back to back in the next year. The first film, Camp X-Ray, will cast Stewart as an American soldier bullied by her peers in Guantanamo Bay, while the second, Sils Maria places her in the role of an actress' assistant alongside Juliette Binoche and Chloe Moretz. The roles may differ greatly from Knightley's but there should be a similar amount of stroppy faces. Maybe it's a K name trend?
