Keira Knightley is set to produce and star in a new project titled The Other Typist.

The Anna Karenina star will take on the lead role in the film, which is an adaptation of Suzanne Rindell's debut novel of the same name, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Other Typist revolves around Rose, a lonely typist in a police precinct who strikes up a friendship with a mysterious co-worker who introduces her to the glamorous and forbidden underworld of 1920s' New York.

Knightley will next be seen opposite Chris Pine in Jack Ryan, which is scheduled to be released on December 25.
