I'm quite excited about this news. I loved Amanda Foreman's biography about Georgiana. such an interesting and at the same time rather sad woman even though she had everything a person could wish for; beauty, intelligence... but not a loving husband.
Anyway, I hope the movie will turn out interesting, I can't wait!
Keira the dazzling duchess

Hollywood royalty: Keira Knightley prepares to play the fifth Duchess of Devonshire
Keira Knightley will portray one of the most hunted women of her age, a celebrity who married an aristocrat - and just about the only man alive who wasn't in love with her.
No, not Diana, Princess of Wales, but one of her distant kin.
The fifth Duchess of Devonshire was a social powerhouse of the 18th century and Keira will portray her (and this column is the first to bring you this news!) when cameras roll on The Duchess in October.

Ooooh, looks very interesting, Renée! Thanks for this interesting news. I wonder who will be cast to play Lady Elizabeth Foster, the Duke's mistress?
Thanks for providing the info & link to the story. Interesting. I'd like to read the book.
To segue to hot males--nothing ever wrong with that--if you click on the picture of Rod Stewart on that same page you'll see Rod not lookin' so good (so sorry Rod your place in the sun has set) BUT you will also see a comparision photo of OO7 James Bond aka Daniel Craig in swimming trunks. Wow! Nice way to start the morning.
YW, Julia and Stevie!
R~ <-- off to check out Rod and Daniel
According to IMDB, this film is going to be released soon.
