Keira Knightley is NOT going to be in MY FAIR LADY? Although, it was widely assumed that she would star, it seems that she's opted out. And although many question the need for a remake, it seems it's still in the works with various names mentioned as possibilities for Eliza Doolittle (Carey Mulligan, Kristen Stewart??)

  2. You're welcome Maria! Yes, we'll watch them if we can find them!! In a way, I miss the days when I found out about a movie because it was ALREADY playing at a nearby cinema! :)

  3. I'm happy Keira won't be Eliza. And, btw, why to do a new version of such a good movie?

  4. *So* happy Kiera isn't Eliza!!! I'd *love* to see Carey Mulligan. Or Claire Danes.

    And I'm *still* waiting on the Higgins news. But I guess it would be good to have an Eliza in place before finding a Henry. ;-)

  5. Luciana, I really wonder as well why they want to remake a classic as this.

    Alexandra, I'm curious as to who they'll cast which will determine if I'll be interested or not in the end!
