While penning Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, writer-director Lorene Scafaria was dealing with a recent death in the family, a breakup, and a new relationship. ”I was obsessed with love and death,” she says, ”and I was excited to tell the story of boy meets girl with a really ticking clock.” Enter Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, unlikely partners in the last weeks before an asteroid destroys Earth. Scafaria wrote uptight insurance exec Dodge with Carell in mind, but the casting of Knightley as free-spirited Penny was more of a surprise. ”Keira never gets to be funny,” she says”
