Knightley Prepares For My Fair Lady Lead

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY is in talks to play flower girl ELIZA DOOLITTLE in a MY FAIR
LADY remake.

The British actress is the favorite to take Audrey Hepburn’s iconic role in
the update of the 1964 musical, based on George Bernard Shaw’s comedy of
manners Pygmalion.

The film will be produced by Duncan Kenworthy and theatre impresario Cameron
Mackintosh, who hope to shoot the film on location in the original London
settings of Covent Garden, Drury Lane and the Ascot racecourse, according to
Daily Variety.

Mackintosh is familiar with the My Fair Lady story – he has produced two
stage revivals of the musical; one of which is currently touring the U.S.
