Joe Wright's ANNA KARENINA Starts Shooting
Posted October 03, 2011
The cameras have started to roll on Joe Wright's new film ANNA KARENINA. Adapted from Leo Tolstoy's epic novel by Tom Stoppard, the film will shoot in the UK and Russia. The film reunites director Wright with Keira Knightly (with whom he's worked with on PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and ATONEMENT before).
Ms. Knightly takes on the title role of the famous 19th century Russian aristocrat caught between her heart and her family. Jude Law plays her husband Aleksei Karenin and Aaron Johnson will step into the part of the dashing Count Vronsky. Rounding out the cast are Kelly Macdonald, Matthew Macfadyen, Domhnall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander Emily Watson, Olivia Williams and Ruth Wilson.
For his team, Mr. Wright has tapped many of the great filmmaking talents he's worked with before: production designer Sarah Greenwood (ATONEMENT, HANNA); cinematographer Seamus McGarvey (ATONEMENT); costume director Jacqueline Durran (ATONEMENT, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE). Dario Marianelli (who won an Oscar for his music for ATONEMENT) will score the film. For complete information go to the official press release: "PRODUCTION COMMENCES ON ANNA KARENINA."
