Keira Knightley will not be MY FAIR LADY

The MY FAIR LADY remake has already seen its share of roster chatter - there were many rumors regarding directorship belonging to either Danny Boyle or Joe Wright, but both those rumors were snuffed out in December with the firm attachment of SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE director John Madden. But Keira Knightley has long been (at least loosely) attached to star in the film, so it's a bit surprising that word is now out that she has officially dropped out of the project, leaving them without a titular fair lady to transform.

So who might fill Eliza Doolittle's fair little shoes?

Reports are that interest is primarily directed at hiring on a real Brit for the the role. The top names at this point include Carey Mulligan (AN EDUCATION), Emily Blunt (THE YOUNG VICTORIA), and Gemma Arterton (QUANTUM OF SOLACE). Mulligan has a background in theater, and Blunt's debut role was actually in a stage musical in 2000. But it's still unclear if any of the three possible leading ladies truly have singing prowess, and really how much that will play a part in final selection.

Do either of these three English roses appeal to you as Eliza?

    I’m excited to be finally posting online after all these years. There really is no mystery about it, is there? I just dropped by your blog and had to write something. I’m a recent college grad, journalism major if you must know, and I absolutely love the art of photography. I’ve got my site up but it’s nothing to boast about yet. None of my stuff’s been posted. Soon as I figure out how to do that, I’ll spend the afternoon posting my best shots. anyways just thought I’d drop a line. I hope to return with more substantial stuff, stuff you can actually use.
