Carey Mulligan will once again work with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn on ‘sex thriller’ I Walk With The Dead, according to The Hollywood Reporter (via The Playlist).
The movie apparently has financing in place, and will shoot after the prolific Danish auteur’s next, Only God Forgives, a Thai boxing flick with Ryan Gosling.
Winding Refn is also developing a remake of Logan’s Run with Gosling.
I Walk With The Dead is dubbed a ‘sex thriller,’ but little is known about it in terms of plot. In an interview with The Playlist from a couple of years back, Winding Refn said, “I’ve always wanted to make a movie with lots of sex.
“So I wrote this story called I Walk With the Dead and it takes place in Miami and it’s just going to have a lot of sex in it. I have two films that are getting made with French investors and one is Only God Forgives and one is I Walk With the Dead.”
As Mulligan is still best known for good-girl roles in An Education, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Never Let Me Go, this sounds like an opportunity for her to shed that image.
Mulligan is currently shooting Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, and she has also completed work on Steve McQueen’s Hunger follow-up, Shame.
Drive opens in the UK on 23 September 2011.

Steve McQueen’s sex addiction drama Shame, has an official UK release date of January 13, 2012, according to an Empire Online exclusive report.
The highly anticipated film, starring Michael Fassbender, Carey Mulligan, James Badge Dale and Nicole Beharie, promises “a compelling and timely examination of the nature of need, how we live our lives and the experiences that shape us.”
In the action drama Drive, actress Carey Mulligan plays Irene, the mother of a young son whose father (Oscar Isaacs) is in prison. One day, Driver (Ryan Gosling) meets Irene in an elevator ride at his apartment and he becomes transfixed. When trouble starts, Driver finds himself embroiled even further in Irene’s life.
Following the FilmDistrict Studio panel in Hall H at Comic-Con, Carey Mulligan sat down for a roundtable and talked about how Nicolas Refn was on her fantasy wish list of directors that she wanted to work with, the challenge of making a film where the dialogue has been stripped away, how she wishes she had more stunt work to do, and that she would love to play a butt-kicking heroine in an action movie, but preferably without a spandex costume.

Question: It seems like you’ve been working a lot lately.
CAREY MULLIGAN: Does it? That’s awful.
Is it true that you hadn’t worked in awhile before you made Drive?
MULLIGAN: I didn’t work for a year after Wall Street. I finished that in November, and then it was the following October that I did Drive, so I took a year off. I didn’t do anything at all, really. I just hung around.
I’ve added lots of pretty new photos to the gallery of Carey at Comic-Con! I absolutely love her new pixie crop cut, glad she decided to go back to it again! EDIT: I’ve added a portrait photo of Carey for EW to the gallery as well! Thanks to my good friend Annika for the heads up!
Carey is currently at Comic-Con, where she is going to be at the FilmDistrict Studio Panel, which is showing exclusive footage of Drive along with co-stars Ryan Gosling, Ron Perlman and Christina Hendricks! It also looks like she’s gone back to her adorable short blonde pixie crop – double yay! As soon as anything pops up online we’ll be sure to bring you all the goods, so stay tuned!
