Latest “Lady” Rumor: Danny Boyle?

dannyboylefairlady_lWho would direct, and who would star in, the big-screen remake of “My Fair Lady” has been a subject of online chatter for months. We know that Emma Thompson is writing the screenplay; and we’ve heard that Keira Knightley might star. Perhaps the surest rumor, though, surfaced this week: Danny Boyle (pictured, inset, with stars of the original “Lady” movie) will direct. And why not? “Slumdog Millionaire”‘s finale showed that he knows how to stage a musical number. And a “Fair Lady” brought to a Boyle certainly wouldn’t be boring.
