Sienna Miller is to star opposite Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes and Charlie Cox in 'Stardust', the big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's fantasy novel of the same name.

The Hollywood Reporter says that 'Layer Cake' helmer Matthew Vaughn will direct the film.

Vaughn, a friend of Gaiman's, also adapted the book for the screen with writing partner Jane Goldman.

Miller previously worked with Vaughn on 'Layer Cake'.
