Since Carey Mulligan’s breakthrough role in An Education in late 2009, she’s been consistently busy with various projects like Never Let Me Go, Drive and Shame, which will be released this December. Mulligan is currently finishing up filming The Great Gatsby for release next year, but she will soon be working with some of the most important new filmmakers with two new films.
Mulligan has signed on to the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn David as the female lead of the film about folk musicians in 1960s New York City. The film will also star Oscar Isaac, who also appeared in Drive. The film is expected to be released next year.
She is also in discussions to star in the next Spike Jones film. The unnamed film is also being written by Charlie Kaufman, who worked with Jonze on Being John Malkovich and Adaptation. The film already has Joaquin Phoenix attached to star and is a parody about world leaders discussing many important topics.
