LONDON (Hollywood Reporter) - Keira Knightley and Colin Farrell have joined the cast of the drama "London Boulevard," the directorial debut of William Monahan, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Departed."

The duo join David Thewlis, Anna Friel, Ben Chaplin and Ray Winstone in the film, which Monahan adapted from author Ken Bruen's novel.

The movie, which begins filming in the British capital this week, centers on a London criminal who is newly released from prison and becomes involved with a reclusive young actress.
