Knightley to be tragic Zelda

Keira Knightley is in talks to play Zelda Fitzgerald in The Beautiful And The Damned.

Leonardo Di Caprio is being touted as a possible co-star in the biopic, based on the life of Great Gatsby novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife - Hollywood's golden couple in the 1920's.

Both were tragic figures. Fitzgerald was an alcoholic crazed by jealous impulses. Zelda was diagnosed as a schizophrenic aged 30 and died in an asylum fire.
