Keira Knightley is in negotiations to join the star-studded cast of Collateral Beauty, EW has confirmed.
The New Line drama stars Will Smith, Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Michael Peña, and Naomie Harris, and is directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada).
Collateral Beauty follows a New York advertising exec (Smith) who experiences a personal tragedy. When he retreats from life entirely, his colleagues devise an unconventional plan to help him recover.
Knightley — who was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar last year for her role in The Imitation Game — is also currently in talks to star in the biopic Colette.
