Keira Knightley set for ‘Never’

Actress to star in Fox Searchlight pic

Keira Knightley will star in the love story “Never Let Me Go” for Fox Searchlight.

Mark Romanek (“One Hour Photo”) will direct the pic, which will also star Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan.

Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich are producing through their London-based DNA Films banner. Alex Garland, who adapted the screenplay from a Kazuo Ishiguro novel, is producing as well. Film 4 is also involved as a producer.

Film is set to lense in April in London and Norfolk, England.

Story revolves around three childhood friends who realize much later that they are being groomed for cold, tragic reasons.

DNA, which has a longstanding partnership with Searchlight, has teamed with the specialty label on a number of films including “The Last King of Scotland” and Danny Boyle’s “Sunshine” and “28 Days Later.”

Knightley is attached to star in several films, including “The Beautiful and the Damned” and the Columbia Pictures remake of “My Fair Lady.”
