Emma Thompson was on a red carpet yesterday talking about the remake of My Fair Lady that she’s written, and she said, “I think Carey is set to play it.”
Well, that’s nice. [Laughs]
Well, that’s hugely flattering. That would be great. I really don’t know, at this point, what’s happening with that. That’s lovely that Emma said that, that’s really nice, but honestly, I don’t know.
What about Effie?
I actually don’t know what’s happening with that. I read that script about two years ago, and that’s another sort of difficult, independent British film. It’s hard to get made. I don’t know if that film’s going, but yeah, I was attached to that.
There’s been chatter that you might star in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for David Fincher.
I would LOVE to do that. I’m not even gonna lie! I would love…not that I was lying before, but yeah, I would love to do that. That would be insane. I’m obsessed with those books, as everyone else is, but no, I haven’t had a phone call. That would be awesome, I would love to play that part, but that hasn’t come to me.
