It's been a while since Keira Knightley joined Mark Romanek's literary sci-fi adaptation **Never Let Me Go, but production is about to start, and a few more cast members have been announced, including Charlotte Rampling and Happy-Go-Lucky's breakout star Sally Hawkins.

Filming's set to start today on the adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's novel, which tells the story of three people who grew up in a boarding school together: Ruth (Knightley), Kathy (An Education's Carey Mulligan) and Tommy (Lions For Lambs' Andrew Garfield). After an idyllic childhood, they have to come to terms with their feelings for each other and the truth behind that mysterious school.

Nathalie Richard (Hidden) and Andrea Riseborough (Channel 4's The Devil's Whore and Happy-Go-Lucky) also join the cast. Alex Garland adapted the script for what looks set to be a thoughtful and intelligent sci-fi adaptation.
