Carey Mulligan in Talks For ‘Nancy and Danny’

Carey Mulligan is an actress with near-impeccable taste in roles, and the next film she has her eye on is the black comedy ‘Nancy and Danny,’ from Indian Paintbrush, the studio that brought us Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom.’

According to THR, Carey Mulligan is in negotiations to star in ‘Nancy and Danny,’ a black comedy film in development at Indian Paintbrush. ‘Man on Wire’ director James Marsh is set to helm the project, based on a script from Brad Inglesby. It may be a little darker than comedic, as it’s said to evoke comparisons to Gus Van Sant’s ‘To Die For,’ the film in which Nicole Kidman played a reporter who manipulated a smitten high school student into murdering her husband.

‘Nancy and Danny’ follows a gold-digging woman in a small town who never quite accomplished her big-city goals. She develops a get-rich-quick scheme by manipulative a naive man into helping her, hoping to attract her high school crush. It definitely sounds like a cross between ‘To Die For’ and last year’s ‘Young Adult.’

Mulligan starred in last year’s critically acclaimed films ‘Drive’ and ‘Shame,’ and recently completed work on Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby,’ which just had its release date moved to summer 2013.
