LONDON, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- Keira Knightley and other prominent British actors recreated scenes from famous American films in a new series of short-films by Vanity Fair.
Directed by London-born photographer Jason Bell, the shorts were inspired in the magazine's observation that the "British invasion of Hollywood has gotten so out of hand." The films accompany Vanity Fair's yearly portfolio of Hollywood stars, which features the likes of Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmaybe and Judy Dench among many more.
The short film is divided into three parts and finds the Brits "Preparing for War," "Coming to America" and finding that "Victory Is Assured,"
In addition to featuring Knightley in Meg Ryan's role from When Harry Met Sally, the shorts also find Tom Hiddleston and Felicity Jones as Bonnie and Clyde, Richard Madden as Clark Gable in Gone With the Wind and Michelle Dockery reciting Lauren Bacall's famous line from To Have and Have Not.
The Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair features Amy Adams, Channing Tatum and Reese Witherspoon on its cover and hits stands Thursday.
