Can we talk about Carey Mulligan for a second? She is everything. Between her past work in brilliant movies like Drive, Shame, and An Education (for which she received an Oscar nomination), and this year’s performance as Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby, it has to be acknowledged that Mulligan absolutely has the goods. And we have a few more reasons to get excited about the British actor and her impending rise to awesomeness. Here are a few details about her upcoming projects.
The new film from the Coen Brothers has everyone talking, and we can't wait for it to hit theatres either. We've only seen a couple of trailers, but there's a good chance that Mulligan's character Jean is already, most likely our favorite.
Far from the Madding Crowd
Mulligan will play the lead role of Bathsheba Everdene, a beautiful young woman who ends up in relationships with three very different men. Based on the novel by Thomas Hardy, we're not sure how the new adaptation will fare compared to the 1967 movie starring Julie Christie. The best part about the cast (other than Mulligan, of course), is Belgian hottie and Rust and Bone actor Matthias Schoenaerts. Fingers crossed that he plays one of the lovers.
Hold On To Me
We don't know too much about this next project, but we're excited to see Mulligan alongside Robert Pattinson, who's well on his way to shedding that Twilight image. Oscar-winner James Marsh is directing the film, and it looks like we can expect good things.
