Keira To Play Catherine: Streisand Directing

Barbra Streisand may be enlisting Keira Knightley to be her Catherine the Great. The Oscar-nominated actress is in talks to star as the Russian monarch in a Streisand-directed biopic, whose script was written by Kristina Lauren Anderson and topped the 2014 Black List for best unproduced screenplays. My idea of Catherine will always be as embodied by Dietrich in “The Scarlet Empress,” from 1934.
