Movie Casting News: Matthew Macfadyen joins Keira Knightley in Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms!

I've always wanted Keira Knightley & Matthew Macfadyen to work together again in another movie whether they pair up as a couple or just co-stars. Well, good news! It may not be the former, but looks like the latter is happening, Keira & Matthew are reuniting and co-starring together in a new Walt Disney Pictures feature film titled The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, a live-action adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffman’s Christmas Eve tale about a young girl who finds a Nutcracker doll among the family’s gifts and is charged by her parents to take special care of it. This will be their third film together since Pride & Prejudice and Anna Karenina! The only one missing is director Joe Wright, but unfortunately, he's not directing this one, Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, The Hundred-Foot's Journey) is. Still, I'm glad KK & MM are going to be in the same movie. So, yeah, I'm even more excited and looking forward for this movie now, which is currently in pre-production with a stellar cast and is slated for 2018 release! I previously posted here last August that Keira Knightley to play Sugar Plum Fairy in Disney's The Nutcracker and more casting (scroll down below) has been announced since then.

More info. on MM's casting in The Nutcracker film and also his casting on the HBO pilot titled Succession, and Keira's casting in The Aftermath film below...
