Knightley keys up for Other Typist

Keira Knightley is set to star in 1920s drama The Other Typist.

The Oscar-nominated Pride And Prejudice star is also making her producing debut in the big-screen adaptation of Suzanne Rindell's first novel for Fox Searchlight, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The book, which is set in 1920s New York, focuses on Rose, a "lonely and isolated typist in a police precinct," who strikes up a friendship with a beautiful and mysterious co-worker, who introduces her to a glamorous and forbidden underworld.

It is not known which role Keira would play.

The 28-year-old actress, who married Klaxons frontman James Righton in France in May, was last seen in period piece Anna Karenina.

She will next be seen in thriller Jack Ryan alongside Chris Pine, and musical comedy drama Can A Song Save Your Life? with Mark Ruffalo and James Corden.
