We already knew that Joe Wright will be reuniting with one of his Atonement stars for his planned Anna Karenina film, which will star Keira Knightley.
Now it seems that Wright is eyeing both James McAvoy and Saoirse Ronan for roles.According to IndieWire, , Anna Karenina has been greenlit by Universal. Despite both Ronan and Mcavoy have really busy schedules, we know that Ronan won’t be playing the Snow White part she was heavily rumored for as the role went to Lily Collins. She and Wright are spending plenty of time together as they make the rounds to promote their new film Hanna.
As for McAvoy, it all depends how X-Men: First Class performs this summer. If both are free and interested they will be joining Jude Law and Aaron Johnson who are already on board.
