Keira Knightley - Keira Knightley eyeing up The Typist film role

Picture:

Keira Knightley is considering a role in Fox's adaptation of 'The Typist'.

The 29-year-old actress is in talks to star in the forthcoming film based on Michael Knight's 2010 book of the same name, which chronicles the early rehabilitation of the Pacific Theatre of the Second World War.

The screen beauty said: ''There's a book called 'The Typist' which the lovely people at Fox are kindly trying to develop for me. My agents found it and gave it to me to read. It has two really good female roles in it, so we shall see.''

Knightley was catapulted to the spotlight following her role in 'Bend It Like Beckham', before hitting the big screen in a number of big Hollywood hits opposite A-listers including Pirates of the Caribbean's Johnny Depp, Atonement's James McAvoy and Anna Karenina's Jude Law, among others.

She has grown up in the film industry and during that time the 29-year-old star has become less concerned about what others think of her.

The star added in an interview with Red magazine: ''I can't do anything about people's opinions of me. If I've learned anything it's to be able to go 'I can only give it my best and I can't control what people think.''

i think she was talking about "the other typist" by suzanne rindell as there was an article about her starring in that project and even producing it, and the fact that she was talking about "two really good female roles"
