‘Anna Karenina’ To Cast Jude Law, Aaron Johnson?

Jude LawAccording to Variety, Jude Law and Aaron Johnson are in talks to join Keira Knightley in Anna Karenina, the Joe Wright-directed adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel, penned by Tom Stoppard. For those readers who slept through that part of their high school literature class, the classic novel follows a woman (to-be-played by Knightley) who finds herself trapped in a loveless marriage as she feels attracted to a soldier. Right now, there’s no word as to who Law or Johnson will play, but we imagine it will be some type of leading role — considering they are both pretty big names and the fact that the major roles still need to be cast. But, the best part about all of this? Since, you know, Mr. Law has always seemed a little, well, dumb, we might finally get the answer to that secretly wondered question of if he can actually read. If he in fact cannot, then starring in a film based on a classic novel is certainly the right way to play it.
