Keira Knightley better take a short honeymoon!

The just-married actress is in talks to replace Anne Hathaway as the lead in the upcoming film Laggies, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The dark comedy tells the story of a young woman coping with her boyfriend's marriage proposal by forming an unlikely new friendship with a 16-year-old (played by Chloë Grace Moretz).

Hathaway originally was set to star in the film, but had to pull out due to scheduling conflicts with her next project, Christopher Nolan's sci-fi Intersteller.

The Lynn Shelton-directed pic is set to begin productions later this year.
