This fall will see director Joe Wright seemingly return to the comfort zone of lit adaptations with Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," which reunites him with his "Atonement" star Keira Knightley in the titular role. Another period drama you ask? Not quite. Wright has shot most of the picture on a single soundstage with interlocking sets built at London's Shepperton Studios with a strong British cast that sees Knightley surrounded by names like Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Ruth Wilson and Holliday Grainger.

This fall will see director Joe Wright seemingly return to the comfort zone of lit adaptations with Leo Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," which reunites him with his "Atonement" star Keira Knightley in the titular role. Another period drama you ask? Not quite. Wright has shot most of the picture on a single soundstage with interlocking sets built at London's Shepperton Studios with a strong British cast that sees Knightley surrounded by names like Jude Law, Aaron Johnson, Kelly Macdonald, Olivia Williams, Ruth Wilson and Holliday Grainger.  

Adapted by Tom Stoppard, Tolstoy's classic novel follows the tragic love story of the titular married Russian aristocrat who causes a scandal when she falls for an army officer. Footage so far has been fairly impressive finding a sweet spot between a contemporary adpatation of the novel and a classic costume drama. An earlier comparison to the works of Baz Luhrmann couldn't be more fitting, we think.

"Anna Karenina" opens September 7th in the U.K. before hitting the States on November 16th. [Kinopoisk]
