Carey Mulligan is poised to return to the West End in a new version of Patrick Marber’s play Closer.

The Great Gatsby actress has been in secret talks about the revival and insiders are already predicting it will be a huge hit.

The play is about the tangled relationships of two couples. It is not yet clear whether Carey will play Alice, an American stripper, or Anna, a photographer.

‘David Leveaux, who will direct the play, worked with Carey in New York in Through A Glass Darkly in 2011 and he’s very keen that she star in Closer,’ says a source.

‘Carey has been offered a lot of money. Advanced negotiations have taken place but she hasn’t confirmed officially. The whole thing is being planned for next summer.’

The play scooped the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play in 1998 and was made into a film in 2004 starring Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Clive Owen and Jude Law.

Carey, 28, last appeared on the London stage in 2007 in The Seagull alongside Kristin Scott Thomas and Chiwetel Ejiofor, at the Royal Court.

She was also in The Hypochondriac at the Almeida in 2005.

Carey, who is married to Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford, is currently filming Far From The Madding Crowd with Michael Sheen and Tom Sturridge.
