Pride and Prejudice

Here's what we know so far:

Keira has signed to play Elizabeth Bennet in 'Pride & Prejudice' for Working Title Films, producers of Love Actually and Four Weddings And A Funeral. Filming is due to start in mid-July. It will be the first movie version of the Jane Austen novel since 1940 (which starred Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier).

Elizabeth Bennet - Keira Knightley
Fitzwilliam Darcy - Matthew MacFadyen
Lydia Bennet - Jena Malone
Jane Bennet - Rosamund Pike
Kitty Bennet - Carey Mulligan
Mary Bennet - Talulah Riley

Director: Joe Wright
Producer: Paul Webster
Screenplay: Deborah Moggach ('Close Relations', 'Tulip Fever'), then Lee Hall ('Billy Elliott').

Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall (both in Derbyshire) are rumoured to be filming locations, the former for Darcy's residence, the latter for the Bennets'.

Working Title Films said: "We're trying to do something that pleases the enthusiasts and the Austen fans, that's a faithful adaptation but with a bit more muscle".
