By MICHAEL FLEMING
Keira Knightley and Colin Farrell are set to star in “London Boulevard,” a crime drama that marks the directing debut of “The Departed” scribe William Monahan. Monahan adapted the Ken Bruen novel. The film will shoot this summer in and around London.
Farrell will play a South London criminal who, after release from prison, tries to give up the gangster life by becoming a handyman for a reclusive young actress.
