Keira Knightley To Star in My Fair Lady

Keira Knightley is reportedly in talks to star in a remake of "My Fair Lady." Columbia Pictures are planning to rework the musical for the big screen with Keira as their leading lady.

According to Variety, Notting Hill producer Kenworthy said the story of Doolittle's transformation from loudmouth to lady "couldn't be more timely in a contemporary world obsessed with overnight celebrity."

He added, "With 40 years of hindsight, we're confident that by setting these wonderful characters and brilliant songs in a more realistic context, and by exploring Eliza's emotional journey more fully, we will honor both Shaw and [score writer Alan] Lerner at the same time as engaging and entertaining contemporary audiences the world over."

So do you think Keira is good for the role? If not, who would you cast?
