“Anna Karenina” is going Hollywood, and the Russian classic is bringing a few Brits with her.
Aaron Johnson and Jude Law are in talks to join the Joe Wright-directed adaptation of the Leo Tolstoy classic for Working Title.
Sources wouldn’t confirm what roles Law and Johnson would play.
Keira Knightley is already attached to star in the title role, based on a Tom Stoppard-penned script.
“Karenina” will be the third collaboration between Knightley and Wright after “Atonement” and “Pride and Prejudice.”
Filming is scheduled to begin in the fall.
