Keira Knightley and Matt Damon look set to star in a movie version of F Scott Fitzgerald's Tender Is The Night.

David Nicholls, who wrote the scripts for Starter For 10 and Simpatico, has adapted the screenplay and 20th Century Fox has offered Keira and Matt the lead roles, according to Pajiba.com.

The story follows the psychological disintegration of a young married American couple on the French Riviera in the 1920s.

Talented Mr Ripley star Matt would play Dick, a promising young doctor living off the money of his wealthy wife Nicole, played by Atonement's Keira.

There is currently no director attached to the project.

The book was previously adapted for the big screen in 1962, with Jennifer Jones and Jason Robards starring in the film.
