Keira Knightley is to star alongside Austrian actor Christoph Waltz in a new film about the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, the moviepilot.de website reported Monday.

Waltz, 53, who won a prize at last year's Cannes Film Festival for his role in Quentin Tarantino's World War II movie "Inglourious Basterds", will play Freud, regarded by many as the father of modern psychoanalysis.

British actress Knightley, best known for the "Pirates Of The Caribbean" movies, will play one of Freud's patients in "The Talking Cure".

The film, directed by David Cronenberg, is based on the play of the same name by British playwright Christopher Hampton.
