Keira Knightley In Talks for 'The Nutcracker' Movie!

Keira Knightley is reportedly in talks to join the upcoming The Nutcracker film as the Sugar Plum Fairy, THR reports.

The movie is an adaptation of the famed Peter Tchaikovsky ballet and the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann.

The film already has Mackenzie Foy, ballerina Misty Copeland and Morgan Freeman attached to star.

In the ballet, the Sugar Plum Fairy is a dance heavy role. It’s unclear if Keira would be required to dance in the movie adaptation.

No word on an exact release date for the movie.

    So why does it have to be Keira Knightley if she can’t dance? Hollywood is full of talented people that could handle this task.
    Please, she’s already done that “singing-heavy” role with no voice or whatsoever. Casting decision as great as the one with Jennifer Lawrence as 30-something in Joy.

    Keira slayed those very complicated dance moves in Anna Karenina. She was regal and effortless. I see no reason why she won’t be able to pull this off.
