Keira Knightley Voted the Year's Top Breakout Movie Star

8 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

British actress Keira Knightley has topped a magazine poll as this year's top breakout movie star. The 18-year-old beauty first came to the attention of international audiences in the sleeper hit Bend It Like Beckham and continued to wow her fans with roles in summer blockbuster Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl and Love Actually. She has now just finished playing warrior Guinevere in the upcoming movie King Arthur, which is expected to expand her fan base even more. Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who chose Knightley for both Pirates of the Caribbean and King Arthur, says, "She can act. With Keira, you don't see the wheels turning." Bruckheimer's sentiments have been echoed by Entertainment Weekly, which has named Knightley the top breakout star of 2003. Others named in the poll include Shia LaBeouf, Naomie Harris and Peter Dinklage. »

3 September 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's as if Warner Bros. Pictures were shining a Bat Signal over Burbank, summoning potential Caped Crusaders. Warners and helmer Christopher Nolan are zeroing in on an actor to star in the title role of the studio's next Batman installment, which is scheduled to start shooting in February. Sources said that during the next three days, several young actors are expected to test for the role. The list of potential crime fighters includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Christian Bale, Joshua Jackson (Dawson's Creek), Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later), Henry Cavill (I Capture the Castle) and Eion Bailey, who stars in the upcoming HBO feature And Starring Pancho Villa as Himself. Meanwhile, sources say Hugh Dancy, currently shooting the Walt Disney Co.'s King Arthur, may test if his schedule permits and he is able to shave the beard his Arthur character, Galahad, is sporting. »

Knightley crowned 'Arthur' queen

14 May 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Bend It Like Beckham star Keira Knightley has scored a starring role as Guinevere in the Walt Disney Co.'s Jerry Bruckheimer-produced King Arthur. Knightley will star opposite Clive Owen in the historical take on the medieval legend for director Antoine Fuqua. Described as a demystified take on the tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the film promises a more realistic portrayal of Arthur than has ever been presented onscreen. It is scheduled to start production next month in Dublin, Ireland. The film will focus on the history and politics of the period during which Arthur ruled -- when the Roman Empire collapsed and skirmishes over power broke out in outlying countries -- as opposed to the mystical elements of the tale on which past Arthur films have focused. »

Bruckheimer Set To Film 'King Arthur' in Ireland

15 April 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been spotted scouting locations in Ireland to shoot the real tale of King Arthur. The star enjoyed his stay so much in the capital Dublin last summer while filming Veronica Guerin with director Joel Schumacher, he has decided to shoot his next big project there. And it's rumored the big-shot is keen to begin filming the movie - which will star English actor Clive Owen in the lead role - this summer. He says of the epic, "We are back in Ireland scouting for King Arthur. We have been out looking at some amazing locations in the North. It's a retelling of the tale. It actually happened much earlier than movies in the past or the English have put on it. They changed the way it was told. Like Arthur was really Roman and the Knights of the round table were actually Russian and were great horse men." »
