Actress Carey Mulligan’s stock continues to rise as she is all but set to appear in “The Cradle Will Fall.” Screen Gems is in charge of the project and is putting production of the film on the fast track.
Mulligan’s participation in the film rests in the hands of writer Jack Olsen who is polishing the script for the film. The basic story may sound familiar to moviegoers as a surrogate mother becomes obsessed with not only keeping her baby, but the husband of the woman she is carrying the child for. No director is attached to the project yet and no other major roles have been cast. Mulligan’s casting is viewed as crucial as names such as Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, and Adrien Brody have been circulated as possible parents in the film assuming Mulligan joins the cast.
Mulligan earned an Oscar nomination for her role in “An Education” and will appear in two big movies due out still this year, “Wall Street 2? and “Never Let Me Go.”
