British actress Keira Knightley will be cloned for her next big screen role in a science fiction thriller.
Director Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go will pit Knightley opposite actors Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan, whose characters grow up in a boarding school with no contact or knowledge of the outside world until they discover they are clones grown for the sole purpose of organ donation.
The thriller is a more futuristic adventure for Knightley, who bound herself in petticoats and corsets for the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise and 2008's The Duchess. She will also star in the upcoming remake of My Fair Lady.
Production is scheduled to begin in April (09) in London and Norfolk, England, reports Daily Variety.
