    News to inspire remake support: Keira Knightley could follow in Greta Garbo's footsteps and play the lead in Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. The screenwriter is Tom Stoppard and the director is Joe Wright, who arguably gets the best from Knightley (see Pride and Prejudice and Atonement). It's Working Title...

    Warner Bros. & Fox Both Ready Moses Pics

    That's right, Hollywood is once again planning on trudging out Bible-based epics, but it's a pretty smart move.

    It seems that these days, you don't even need a feature-length film under your belt to be handed the keys to a big, expensive sci-fi flick: a number of directors have leaped straight into tentpole territory with a CGI-heavy short film.

    Keira Knightley & Joe Wright May Reteam On New Tom Stoppard-Penned Version Of 'Anna Karenina'

    For such an incontestably great piece of literature, it's strange that Leo Tolstoy's novel "Anna Karenina" hasn't been treated better.
