Supposed Bond Girl Is A Bright Star

Abbie Cornish is, if you believe gossip, a homebreaker and a future Bond girl. In fact, she may be neither, but she has entered final negotiations to star in Jane Campion's Bright Star. Wisest move of the three, if you ask me.

The film - written by Campion, and to be directed by her with a late summer and autumn shoot planned - tells of Fanny Brawne and John Keats' romance. It was doubtlessly tempestuous and passionate, torrid and wrenching, and ran from Keats being 22 until he was 25 - and then it was over. Principally, of course because that's when Keats died. How romantic.
