Bust out the Dramamine and brace for PTSD. Keira Knightley is on board to lead a film adaption of Ruth Ware’s bestselling novel “The Woman in Cabin 10” at Netflix.

In what marks one of Dan Lin’s first green lights as the new film chief at the streamer, “The Woman in Cabin 10” follows a travel journalist (Knightley) assigned to cover the launch of a luxury yacht. When she witnesses a passenger tossed overboard in the dead of night, no one believes her story as all on the ship have been accounted for. Doggedly she searches for answers, putting her own life in danger as the boat barrels through the desolate North Sea.

Ware’s book is beloved, and marks a juicy protagonist role for Academy Award nominee Knightley. The film will be directed by Simon Stone, whose credits include the 2021 Netflix project “The Dig,” starring Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes and Lily James, as well as the 2015 Geoffrey Rush drama “The Daughter.” Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse (“Snake Eyes”) wrote the script for “Cabin 10,” on which director Stone also took a pass.

Sister, the production company co-founded by Elizabeth Murdoch and Jane Featherstone and led by CEO Cindy Holland, will produce the project with Debra Hayward. Sister’s Ilda Diffley will executive produce.

Knightley is represented by United Agents, Range Media Partners, Narrative and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern. She’s currently filming the Netflix series “Black Doves,” and recently appeared in “Boston Strangler” and “The Aftermath.” Her two Oscar nods came with the 2005 revisiting of “Pride & Prejudice,” a sleeper box office hit, and 2014’s “The Imitation Game.”

Stone is repped by CAA, Stacey Testro International and David Fox at Myman Greenspan Fox Rosenberg Mobasser Younger & Light. Writers Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse are at CAA.

Oscar nominee Keira Knightley is set to star in dystopian sci-fi thriller Conception, in which the British government has taken control over parenting.

Written and directed by Camille Griffin (Silent Night), Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler are producing for Maven Screen Media and Fortitude is launching for international sales at the upcoming AFM.

CAA and Range Media Partners are handling domestic sales. Fortitude is also financing the film, which will be a UK production produced under an Equity contract.

The official synopsis reads: “Conception is a sci-fi thriller set in the not-too-distant future of Britain, where the government has taken authoritarian rule over parenting. The film follows Rita (Knightley), a loyal civil servant and believer in the unforgiving system she upholds, until unexpected events endanger her own parental status, rendering her victim to the same laws she so readily inflicted on others.

The film reunites Knightley and Griffin, who previously collaborated on the film Silent Night, also produced by Rattray and Styler. Additional casting is underway.

Maven said: “We are in awe of Camille’s vivid imagination and creative talent. She has a unique ability to express big complex ideas in every day, relatable events. We are thrilled to reassemble the Silent Night team and work with Keira again.”

Camille Griffin added: “I’m lucky to have found Keira. She is as great an ally as she is a talent. I plan to make a unique and exciting film together.”

Griffin is represented by CAA and Range Media Partners. Knightley is represented by United Agents, Range Media Partners, Narrative and Jason Sloane.

In trailers for the new true crime-based period piece Boston Strangler, it’s surreal to hear an American accent emerge from Keira Knightley’s extremely English visage. But it was almost a lot weirder. Knightley and her co-star Carrie Coon, who play real-life Boston Record American reporters Loretta McLaughlin and Jean Cole, told People at the film’s NYC premiere that Bostonian writer-director Matt Ruskin forbade the cast from taking a stab at Boston accents. Knightley says that the cast all tried to talk Ruskin into letting them do the accent, “and he was like, ‘Absolutely not.’ So we failed, but I kind of hear him, because as I found out, people are very opinionated about that accent.”

Coon, who isn’t British but is from Ohio (which is in no way, shape, or form Boston), says that she “was really looking forward to the Boston accent.” Coon got an accidental read in at Ruskin when explaining his Boston Strangler gag order, saying he’s “from Boston and very insistent that anybody who is not from Boston was not going to be doing an accent, because he claims he’s from Boston and he doesn’t have an accent. But he does.” While Knightley and Coon are disappointed they didn’t get to throw around some “wicked pissahs” while tracking down the Boston Stranglah, it’s probably for the best. Sounds like Ruskin didn’t want a Nancy Donovan situation on his hands.

20th Century Studios has set Keira Knightley to star in Boston Strangler, a drama written and to be directed by Matt Ruskin, best known for Crown Heights. Ridley Scott and Kevin Walsh of Scott Free will produce alongside Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara of LuckyChap Entertainment. Pic begins shooting in December in Boston.

Based on the infamous Boston Strangler murders, this is the true story of Loretta McLaughlin, the first reporter to connect the murders and break the story of the Strangler. She and fellow reporter Jean Cole challenged the sexism of the early 1960s to report on the city’s most notorious serial killer and worked tirelessly to keep women informed. Loretta pursued the story at great personal risk and uncovered corruption that cast doubt on the true identity of the Boston Strangler.

Boston-native Ruskin researched McLaughlin and Cole by tracking down their families and their actual research from the early ’60s.

Knightly plays McLaughlin. She next stars in Silent Night, and voices the title character in Charlotte.

Sam Roston will oversee for Scott Free and Bronte Payne for LuckyChap. Sarah Shepard is overseeing for 20th Century Studios.

Knightley is repped by United Agents, Range and attorney Jason Sloane. Ruskin is repped by UTA, Grandview and Granderson Des Rochers; LuckyChap is with Management 360, CAA and attorney Jeff Bernstein.

British actress Keira Knightley is known for her measured performances in period dramas like Pride & Prejudice as well as her involvement in mainstream favourites like the Pirates of the Caribbean. Her latest project will have its premiere on September 14 at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival where it will be available in digital formats and accessible through a physical screening as well.

Directed by Eric Warin and Tahir Rana, Charlotte is a brand new animated film in which Keira Knightley voices a Jewish artist who grows up during the volatile sociopolitical climate of the Second World War. The film attempts to explore life through politics and art, delineating how the two intertwine to form a fascinating commentary on human existence.

The official synopsis reads: “Charlotte is an animated drama that tells the true story of Charlotte Salomon, a young German-Jewish painter who comes of age in Berlin on the eve of the Second World War. Fiercely imaginative and deeply gifted, she dreams of becoming an artist. Her first love applauds her talent, which emboldens her resolve.”

Adding: “But the world around her is changing quickly and dangerously, limiting her options and derailing her dream. When anti-Semitic policies inspire violent mobs, she leaves Berlin for the safety of the South of France. There she begins to paint again, and finds new love. But her work is interrupted, this time by a family tragedy that reveals an even darker secret. Believing that only an extraordinary act will save her, she embarks on the monumental adventure of painting her life story.”

Discussing the project, Jen Gorton of Sierra/Affinity, said: “All of us at Sierra/Affinity are excited to work with this star-studded cast and present this unique animated film to distributors across the globe. The story of Charlotte is one that deserves to be told and we are confident that the massive talent of the cast combined with the direction of the filmmaking team will reach and touch adults worldwide.”

Producer Julia Rosenberg also commented on the importance of the project, adding: “Charlotte Salomon invented the graphic memoir when she painted her life story in over a thousand works while living as a refugee during wartime. Her vitality and stunning talent have been overlooked for too long. Charlotte is a gesture of resistance, honouring her legacy while revealing it to the world.”

AMC Networks’ streaming bundle AMC+ and RLJE Films have picked up the Keira Knightley holiday comedic drama Silent Night which they’ll give a day-and-date release to in theaters and exclusively on AMC+ this December in the U.S. and Canada.

Silent Night follows a group of old friends who – in true British fashion and while the rest of the world faces impending doom – reunite to celebrate Christmas in the comfort of an idyllic country home. Burdened with the inconvenience of mankind’s imminent destruction, they adopt a stiff upper lip, crack open another bottle of Prosecco and continue with their festivities. But no amount of stoicism can replace the courage needed for their last night on Earth.

The pic reps the feature directorial debut of scribe Camille Griffin and also stars Matthew Goode, Roman Griffin Davis, Annabelle Wallis, Lily-Rose Depp, Ṣọpé Dìrísù, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Lucy Punch, Rufus Jones and Trudie Styler among others. Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman franchise), Trudie Styler (Moon) and Celine Rattray (The Kids Are Alright) produce.

“With a focus on growing original and exclusive content for AMC+, we’re excited to partner with RLJE Films to bring Silent Night to a broad audience across both streaming and theatrical as we continue to meet viewers wherever they are and optimize exposure for great content,” said Courtney Thomasma, general manager for AMC+. “Camille Griffin and this all-star cast have created a film that’s emotional, funny and thought-provoking – exploring universal themes of friendship and love, class and privilege – and we are thrilled to add it to our robust lineup of high-quality, character-driven dramas and films this year.”

“Silent Night is completely original and a true achievement for Camille Griffin in her feature writing/directorial debut,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer for RLJE Films. “The film could not be more timely in asking audiences, in a comedic yet honest way, what sacrifices they would be willing to make for the good of their family and humanity at large.”

“Silent Night treads its own unique path and finding the right distributor was akin to finding a school for our naughty child. I wanted to know our film would be in safe, loving hands and I know it will be with AMC+ and RJLE Films,” said Griffin. “I am hugely grateful to TIFF that my first feature will premiere at their festival.”

The pic is executive produced by Claudia Vaughn, Peter Morton, Stephen Marks, Carlos Peres, Adam Bohling, David Reid, Hélène Théodoly, Audra LaBrosse and Pietro Greppi with co-producer Greg McManus. The deal was negotiated by Ward on behalf of RLJE Films and AMC+ with Endeavor Content on behalf of the filmmakers. Endeavor Content is handling international sales at TIFF.

Keira Knightley is in talks to star in the new Searchlight sci-fi drama Conception, reuniting with her Silent Night director Camille Griffin. Griffin will write and direct, with Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler producing through their Maven Screen Media banner.

The story is set in the near future, when the British government takes authoritarian rule over parenting. It follows a vigorous License Officer (Knightley), who is a firm believer in the controversial system she upholds until an unexpected event imperils her own parental status in the very administration she enforces.

Searchlight SVP Production Taylor Friedman and Director of Development & Production Pete Spencer will oversee for the studio.

Knightley, Griffin and Maven are coming off their upcoming Christmas-themed pic Silent Night, which Endeavor Content is selling at the Cannes virtual market and also stars Griffin’s son Roman, who starred in the Searchlight’s Oscar-nominated satire Jojo Rabbit.
