Carey Mulligan is in negotiations to star in Nancy and Danny, a thriller being developed by Indian Paintbrush.
Set in a small town, the project concerns a money-hungry woman (Mulligan) whose big-city dreams failed. In order to land a high school crush, she uses a hapless man as a pawn in a get-rich-quick scheme that quickly goes wrong.
The project is said to be in the vein of To Die For, Gus Van Sant’s 1995 black comedy that featured a breakout performance by Nicole Kidman. Sources said Mulligan pursued the part.
Brad Inglesby wrote the script for Nancy, which is being produced by Alexandra Milchan of EMJAG Productions, Indian Paintbrush’ Steven Rales and Mark Roybal as well as Todd Field. James Marsh, the filmmaker behind the acclaimed documentary Man on a Wire, is on board to direct. Brad Ingelsby wrote the script.
Mulligan, who last year co-starred in Drive and Shame, next will be seen in The Great Gatsby. The Baz Luhrmann-directed adaptation just moved its release date from December to summer 2013.
In a surprise move, Warner Bros. has pushed back Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby from Dec. 25 to summer 2013.
The 3D epic, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic novel, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton.
“Based on what we’ve seen, Baz Luhrmann’s incredible work is all we anticipated and so much more. It truly brings Fitzgerald’s American classic to life in a completely immersive, visually stunning and exiting way. We think movieogers of all ages are going to embrace it, and it makes sense to ensure this unique film reaches the largest audience possible,” said Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman, who announced the move with international distribution president Veronika Kwan Vandenberg.
Great Gatsby was considered a prime awards contender for Warners, but the studio isn’t left without contenders between Ben Affleck’s Argo (Oct. 12), Cloud Atlas (Oct. 26) and New Line’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Dec. 14), from director Peter Jackson.
It used to be virtually taboo for a Hollywood studio to push back the release date of a high-profile title, but more and more, studios are doing just that for a variety of reasons.
One specific issue facing Great Gatsby: DiCaprio stars in another 2012 Christmas Day movie, Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.
