British actress KEIRA KNIGHTLEY is in talks to play ZELDA FITZGERALD in THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE DAMNED, according to reports.
Leonardo Di Caprio is being touted as a possible co-star in the biopic, based on the life of Great Gatsby novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife.
The film is set in the 1920s when the pair were known as Hollywood’s golden couple.
They had a tempestuous relationship and parted, with both of them writing books about their time together.
Zelda was diagnosed as a schizophrenic aged 30 and died in 1948 when the hospital she had been a patient in caught fire.
