Actress Keira Knightley won't be resting on her laurels following her recent wedding as she's already in negotiations to star in Lynn Shelton's dark comedy Laggies, replacing the departing Anne Hathaway who had to fulfill her commitment to Christopher Nolan's next project, the sci-fi epic Interstellar.

Once everything is signed, Knightley would be joining Sam Rockwell and Chloe Moretz in the new movie from the increasingly-busier Lynn Shelton who made waves at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival a few years back with her sophomore feature Humpday, followed that with the equally-acclaimed Your Sister's Sister and already had her fourth feature Touchy Feely at this year's Sundance. She's also directed episodes of "New Girl" and "Ben and Kate" in between.

Shelton gets great performances out of her actors, often by collaborating with them directly before writing any sort of script or treatment, and her latest project is about a young woman who reacts to her boyfriend's marriage proposal by pretending to go on a business retreat but actually hanging out with a 16-year-old, played by Moretz.

The 28-year-old actress has a number of projects coming up including Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan reboot starring Chris Pine, Can A Song Save Your Life? the new movie from Once director John Carney, plus she got married to musician James Righton in France on Saturday breaking this writer's heart to splinters.
