Keira Knightley Wanted For Jurassic Sequel

Young British star KEIRA KNIGHTLEY is poised to sign for a role that will see her soar into the Hollywood 'superleague'.

The PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL actress is wanted by superstar director STEVEN SPIELBERG to take a leading role in the fourth JURASSIC PARK blockbuster.

Keira, 18, gushes, "It was so amazing because I've been a big fan of the original film for years. Steven said he liked my work in BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM and wanted to meet me.

"I think SAM NEILL really pushed for me as well, because we had worked together before on DOCTOR ZHIVAGO.

"There were actually two roles in Jurassic Park IV that Steven thought I might fit. First there was the granddaughter part. The other was substantially larger but I won't go into any details in case I make Steven angry."

In-demand Keira has also signed up with Spielberg's DREAMWORKS production company for a role opposite JUDE LAW in book adaptation TULIP FEVER.
