The Painted Veil director John J. Curran is set to direct the forthcoming Keira Knightley film The Beautiful and the Damned. The period piece, which follows the tempestuous relationship between writer F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda Sayre, is scheduled to begin production in March.
Knightley will play Zelda Sayre, who often inspired her husband's literary work. Nick Cassavetes was originally attached to direct, but he has since dropped out of the project, with Curran stepping in.
