Keira Knightley starring in London Boulevard

The Departed’s scribe William Monahan has cast Colon Farrell and Keira Knightley in his directorial debut, London Boulevard.

The crime drama, adapted by Monahan from Ken Breun’s book, finds a south London criminal (Farrell) attempting to give up the world of the gangster.

Hoping to go straight, he takes a job as a handyman for a reclusive young thesp (Knightley).
