With the Cannes Film Festival set to get underway later this month, there’s plenty of wheeling and dealing going on, which means there’s plenty of casting news. First up, Keira Knightley has signed on as a late addition to the Everest. Directed by Baltasar Kormakur (2 Guns), the movie focuses on two different expeditions that struggle to survive while climbing the world’s tallest mountain. Filming has been underway for well over a month, and the Daily Mail reports that Knightley has signed on to play “Jan Arnold, widow of climber Rob Hall, who conquered the mountain five times.” Knightley “shot most of her scenes at Pinewood and around the Home Counties,” so don’t expect to see her character scaling the mountain. The outstanding cast also includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, Thomas M. Wright, Sam Worthington, and Robin Wright. Everest opens in 3D and IMAX 3D on September 18, 2015.
