What??! Darn, I was pretty excited about this project and Wright at the helm. But The Playlist just reported over the weekend that it was all a lie. There’s even a video on that post of the director himself admitting he passed on the directing offer, but for some reason, the press already got a hold of the false info that he was on board. He clearly didn’t sound too enthused about it, though he was rather coy about the real reason he didn’t want to direct.
Not sure if this mean this My Fair Lady remake project is now in limbo, though Wright did say Keira Knightley still might do the role of Eliza. Well, I’ll definitely keep an eye on this one. I’ll post updates as soon as I get ’em.
