McAvoy & Knightley Aim for "Atonement"

by | April 5, 2006 | Comments

James McAvoy, last seen in Narnia, and Keira Knightley, last seen as Domino, will co-star in the potentially controversial British thriller Atonement, an "accused rapist" tale that’s based on the novel by Ian McEwan. The film is being directed by sophomore helmer Joe Wright, who made a pretty big splash last year with his Pride & Prejudice rendition.

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Rising Scottish star James McAvoy has joined the cast of Joe Wright’s Atonement, the filmmakers said Monday. McAvoy has signed to play Robbie Turner, a man accused of rape by a 16-year old, in the movie adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel of the same name. The Scot will star opposite Keira Knightley in the Working Title production, which is due to begin production in May this year. McAvoy has recently been seen as Mr. Tumnus in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and is filming Becoming Jane opposite Anne Hathaway. Atonement is billed as a love story between Knightley and McAvoy’s characters, but also covers the struggles of class, war and emotional truth."
