Keira Knightley to star in Effie Gray biopic

Los Angeles: Actress Keira Knightley is reportedly being roped in to star in a biopic about Euphemia `Effie` Gray.

The actress is in talks to play the unhappy young bride in a film project called `Untouched`, which will be a rival for another film `Effie` starring Dakota Fanning as the
titular character.

While Fanning`s `Effie` already enters production, `Untouched` is still in the early phase of pre-production.

Brazilian director Andrucha Waddington has been tapped to helm the upcoming period drama, while Aleksandra Crapanzano is set to pen the script.

`Untouched` follows the real-life love affair between young Effie, who is trapped in a loveless marriage, with her British art critic husband John Ruskin and his protege, painter John Everett Millais.
