Dario Marianelli is set to reunite with Joe Wright on the director’s upcoming movie adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel Anna Karenina. The movie stars Keira Knightley in the title role, Jude Law as her husband Aleksei Karenin and Aaron Johnson as Count Vronsky. Kelly Macdonald, Emily Watson, Matthew Macfayden, Olivia Williams, Domhnall Gleeson, Alice Vikander and Ruth Wilson are co-starring in the film. Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Empire of the Sun) adapted Tolstoy’s novel for the screen and Tim Bevan & Eric Fellner (Love Actually, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Richard Webster (Atonement, Eastern Promises) are producing the Working Title Films production. Marianelli and Wright have previously collaborated on Pride and Prejudice, The Soloist and Atonement, the latter of which earned the composer his first Academy Award. The director’s most recent film Hanna featured a score by The Chemical Brothers. Anna Karenina will be distributed in the US by Focus Features and by Universal Pictures overseas. A release for next year’s fall season is planned.

As announced a few months ago, the composer has also scored Lasse HalLstrom’s comedy drama Salmon Fishing in the Yemen starring Emily Blunt, Ewan McGregor and Kristin Scott Thomas. The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and has been picked up by CBS Films for a domestic theatrical release on March 2, 2012.
