Keira Knightley, the actress last seen in Anna Karenina, is set to star and produce in the film version of Suzanne Rindell’s upcoming novel The Other Typist. Set to be published later this year, the book tells the story of a lonely typist living in 1920’s New York. When she meets an exotic new friend the pair begin to explore the Big Apple’s seedy but glamorous underworld. The book has been likened to a Patricia Highsmith novel in the vein of The Talented Mr. Ripley as well as similarities to a Hitchcock film. Before she heads off to ‘20s New York though Knightley will next be seen opposite Chris Pine in Jack Ryan before heading back to New York for Can A Song Save Your Life?
