The stars of the adaptation discuss getting into character at the London premiere.
British director Joe Wright's (Atonement) latest movie, Anna Karenina, marks the thirteenth time that Russian writer Leo Tolstoy's classic novel of the same name has been adapted for the big screen, but before you think "been there, done that," check out the new featurette about the movie above. Not only does the featurette offer a behind-the-scenes look at the gorgeous period costumes and sets of the movie, but it includes commentary from lead actors Keira Knightley and Jude Law, who explain how Wright has "completely broken" the "rules of a period film" by setting the classic story predominantly in the "almost magical and fantastical" reality of the theater. more about Anna Karenina >> Posted 08.23.12 by BrentJS
The summer, so far, has been dominated by comic book movies and other assorted sequels, but the fall will offer a few more literary adaptations, including director Joe Wright's (Hanna) Anna Karenina.
Based on Leo Tolstoy's 1877 classic novel and adapted by playwright and screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love), the movie features one of the classic love triangles, as Anna (Keira Knightley) is caught between her love of Count Vronsky (Aaron Johnson) and her husband Alexei Karenin (Jude Law). A new, six-minute preview clip for the movie has debuted online, with a brief introduction by Wright, who explains that the movie was almost entirely shot in a dilapidated theater, as depicted in the recently released poster. watch the clip >> Posted 07.23.12 by Ryan
It's been a hot summer, but checking out the snow-filled new poster for this fall's Anna Karenina may cool you down. It also might make you want to yell "Hey! Anna! Look out for that train!"
So far, the photos released from this newest big-screen adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's 1877 novel show opulent sets and historically accurate, detailed costumes. It's no surprise that the historical details are on point since the movie is directed by Joe Wright, who has directed star Keira Knightley previously in Atonement as well as in 2005's Pride & Prejudice. This newest poster, which also serves as a bit of a spoiler as far as the ending goes, features Knightley, as the conflicted Anna, caught between the men in her life, Count Vronsky (Aaron Johnson) and her husband Alexei Karenin (Jude Law).

Once again, Keira Knightley and director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) are teaming up for a period movie based on a novel. This time around, the duo is taking on the white-hot trend of basing a movie on a late 19th-century Russian novel dealing with the fallen bourgeois contrasted with the strength and intrinsic worth of the proletariat. Those are nearly as popular as movies about vampires fighting werewolves.
Four pics of Knightley as the title character in Anna Karenina were posted on the Focus Features website (and Collider), and they further illustrate the point that the actress can really wear any look from the past 250 years with panache. The new pics also feature Jude Law as Anna's dull politician husband Alexei Karenin and Aaron Johnson as the dashing Count Alexei Vronsky. (Seriously, Tolstoy? Two main characters with the same first name? This is why 12th graders hate you.) While only a few years ago it seemed impossible that Law could ever play the stodgy, boring husband, these photos make the casting decision look pitch perfect.

It's been a busy week for casting news, with several projects adding, announcing, or subtracting cast members.
In January, it was announced that Judd Apatow's next writing and directing project would be a spin-off of his successful, 2007 romantic comedy Knocked Up. The movie will focus on the married characters portrayed by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, instead of than Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen, in a story that has been kept under wraps so far.
Looks like Rudd and Mann will be getting some company, with THR reporting that Megan Fox is negotiating to join the comedy. What role Fox will play is also being kept secret.
It's no secret who Albert Brooks is playing, with Deadline reporting that the comedian is joining the cast as Rudd's dad. more casting news >> Posted 03.19.11 by Ryan
