Knightley Has The Best Time

Keira drama finally gets going

If Keira Knightley has a problem with the script of her new film, at least she’ll have the writer’s phone number.

Because drama The Best Time Of Our Lives is finally getting the greenlight after four years in limbo. And it's written by Sharman Macdonald, also known as Keira’s mum

It’s based on the true story of the relationship between Dylan Thomas, his wife Caitlin, childhood friend Vera Phillips and Phillips’ future husband, William Killick. Knightley will play Vera.

And she knows the director, too – John Maybury previously worked with her on psychodrama The Jacket. He’ll crank the cameras in April.
