Keira Knightley has joined the cast of New Line’s ensemble drama “Collateral Beauty,” starring Will Smith.

Producers are Anthony Bregman, Bard Dorros, Allan Loeb, Michael Sugar and PalmStar CEO Kevin Frakes. Steven Pearl is exec producing.

The movie will hit theaters on Dec. 16, 2016, putting it in prime position for an awards season run. Production will start this month in New York.

Knightley was most recently seen in “Everest.” She is repped by CAA, United Agents and MGMT Entertainment.
