What is it with Australia today? First comes word of Sydney, I Love You, and now Carey Mulligan looks to be heading to the Australian Outback in search of a little sci-fi action. She’s attached to star in a new film called, shockingly, Outback.
We may have to wait a little while for the film to get moving, though – as it’s based on an original idea from director Gary Ross and writer Nissar Modi, and hasn’t actually been written yet. Add to that the small fact that Ross is a little busy at the moment, working on The Hunger Games.
Variety couldn’t dig up what the film will actually be about other than it’s science fiction with an action focus. Graham King’s GK Films is behind the new movie, which hopefully means it has a solid idea behind it.
And the delay will actually help Mulligan, as she’s been in demand recently – she’s in Drive with Ryan Gosling and stars opposite Michael Fassbender in Steve McQueen’s Shame. Oh, and there’s the small matter of the sizeable role she’s getting set for in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby this summer. Since that film’s been planned for an Australian shoot, maybe she’ll just hang around afterwards…
Through A Glass Darkly has finally opened on Broadway! Last night was the opening, and the reviews for Carey’s performance are already glowing. I’ve added pictures from the curtain call and after-party, with hopefully more on the way. Enjoy!
Even in this age of celebrity sex tapes and nude snapshots on Twitter, watching Carey Mulligan in “Through a Glass Darkly” feels like a major invasion of privacy. Portraying a young woman sliding into insanity in Jenny Worton’s stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film, which opened on Monday night at the New York Theater Workshop, Ms. Mulligan creates the illusion of someone who has no idea that she’s being observed.
There are moments when this extraordinary actress behaves with an ugliness and ungainliness that people reserve for those moments when they’re sure they’re alone. On other occasions she is lovely and ingratiating company, at least on the surface. Karin, Ms. Mulligan’s character, is on vacation with the members of her family, and she wants more than anything for all of them to get along.
But as hard as she tries, Karin can’t stop feeling the pull of the shadow world inside her, a world that starts to seem more real than any external existence. Ms. Mulligan makes sure that we, too, feel that gravitational force, and it is not an easy sensation. But if you want to experience the shock of illumination that acting, at its best, can achieve — and only occasionally does — you need to see Ms. Mulligan’s performance.
It’s been a while since I’ve been over to update this site, but today I bring you 6 images of Carey on stage performing Through a Glass Darkly, click on the thumbnails below to see the images in our gallery.

We have found our Tom Buchanan! EW.com reports that Joel Edgerton has been cast in The Great Gatsby as Daisy’s husband, Tom Buchanan.
Baz Luhrmann told Deadline that Edgerton “could credibly be (as F. Scott Fitzgerald describes him) ‘one of the most powerful ends that ever played football at New Haven,’ had five-star acting chops and in the big dramatic showdown scenes between Gatsby and Tom, [and could] hold the screen against Leonardo DiCaprio.”
Collider has a bunch of new stills from Drive‘s press kit that was released a little bit ago and two of those feature Carey! A full synopsis has also been released, which you can read below.
Driver (RYAN GOSLING) is a stunt driver by day and a getaway driver by night. Doesn’t matter what job he does, Driver is most comfortable behind the wheel of a car. Shannon (BRYAN CRANSTON) is part mentor, part manager for Driver. Since he knows what a great talent Driver is behind the wheel, he either peddles him to film and television directors in the entertainment business or thieves who need an accomplished getaway driver, taking a cut for his own pockets. Always looking to make a buck, Shannon’s current plan is funding a stock car that Driver can race on the professional circuit. Since Bernie Rose (ALBERT BROOKS) is the wealthiest guy he knows, even if the sources of his money are questionable, Shannon proposes he be their investor. After seeing Driver in action at the speedway, Bernie Rose insists Nino (RON PERLMAN) partners with them as well. Primarily a loner and ambivalent about the deals Shannon makes for him, Driver’s world changes the day he shares an elevator ride at his apartment building with Irene (CAREY MULLIGAN). When he sees her again at the grocery store with her young son, Benicio (KADEN LEOS), he is transfixed, and willingly offers help when they are stranded in the parking lot because Irene’s car won’t start. Soon Driver settles into a routine of driving Irene to her waitress job and watching Benicio, entangled in their lives while her car is fixed. This interlude in Driver’s life abruptly stops when Standard (OSCAR ISAAC), Irene’s husband, is let out early from prison for good behavior. Even though nothing has happened between Driver and Irene, Standard is threatened by another man’s presence in his family’s life. Driver backs off, respectful of Irene’s desire to keep her family together, but when he finds Standard bloodied and lying in the garage with a scared Benicio standing next to his father, Driver is embroiled even further in Irene’s life. Then trouble begins…

When a legacy of denial and repression boils over, threatening the future of the entire family, Karin decides that she must take command of her own destiny.
