Hello, just a quick admin note from myself. In order to save loading time for people I have switched the site’s theme to a less image-heavy one. I hope this works for everyone.

Over the coming week or two I am going to spend a lot of time working on the site, organising the pages and getting everything up to date. If there is anything in particular you would like to see here at Carey Mulligan Online, please leave your suggestion in the comments.

Four new gorgeous stills of Carey in The Greatest have been released and are in the gallery. Enjoy!

At last! Over 1,500 DVD-quality screen captures of Carey from her breakout role as Jenny in “An Education” have been added to the gallery. She looks unbelievably lovely in every shot – enjoy!

I am in the midst of capping Ms. Mulligan’s award-winning performance in An Education, but for now, here are the extras from the DVD – over 500 captures of deleted scenes and a featurette. Expect the film caps up asap – Enjoy!

Effie, a film based on the relationship between Victorian poet and artist, John Ruskin and his unfortunate wife Effie Gray will go into production next month. The film is written by Emma Thompson who will also play Lady Eastlake, and the Oscar-nominated Carey Mulligan will be in the starring role of Gray.

Richard Laxton is directing and Thompson’s husband, Greg Wise, is to produce the film and play the part of Ruskin. According to thefancarpet he and Thompson asked Mulligan to take the part before her success in An Education:

“Carey has a rare quality of being open and unfettered. At the time Effie said she would have borne anything, had Ruskin just been kind. But I can’t play him as an ogre because the audience need to understand why she married this man.”

Ruskin and Gray’s unconsummated love affair will be central to the plot of the film. United on his wedding night in April 1848 with Effie Gray, the girl who had been the object of some of his most beautiful writing during their courtship, Ruskin suddenly realizes he has made a mistake and postpones the consummation.

Carey Mulligan feels old.

The ‘An Education’ actress – who is dating actor Shia LaBeouf – admits her work and life experiences make her seem much older than her 24 years, though she is still a teenager at heart.

She said: “I think I feel older. You meet a lot of people much older, one of my closest friends in an actor called Denis Lawson who is in his fifties. I met him when I was 20 on ‘Bleak House’ and we are bonded by an experience and so yes, in some ways I feel older but in some ways I feel like a 13 year old.

“But also, I’ve been working, I have a career, I’ve bought my own flat, I have a mortgage – so sometimes I feel annoyingly grown up and I don’t want to be but most of the time I feel 12.”

The ‘Public Enemies’ actress also admitted she won’t carry on acting forever.

She said: “I have always wanted to keep going for as long as I want to but then I will stop if I get bored or if I get frustrated or tired – but I don’t feel it.”

David Fincher is reportedly circling the English language adaptation of the first installment in Stieg Larsson’s best-selling “Millenium” series, “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.”

Already adapted into an award-winning Swedish language trilogy, the English-language version is being produced by Scott Rudin at Sony with Steve Zaillian (“Schindler’s List,” “American Gangster”) adapting. It’s development seems to making progress with the studio also reportedly having an actress on top of its wishlist for the role of the Lisbeth Salander, a socially-awkward, computer hacking genius: Carey Mulligan. Though no deals have been made yet, Sony is apparently very happy with the work Fincher has done on “The Social Network,” itself an adaptation of a Ben Mezrich book.

Fincher has already ventured into crime-thrillers, of course, with “Se7en” and “Zodiac” but had previously shown an interest in returning to the genre with an adaptation of “Torso” that had Matt Damon, Casey Affleck and Rachel McAdams attached. Whether Larsson’s worldwide literary hits are the re-entry point into the genre Fincher was after remains to be seen.

The project, which is loaded with franchise potential, is predicted to spark a lot of interest. The lead male role of womanizing journalist Mikael Blomkvist has also been linked to George Clooney though that seems to be more internet-casting than anything substantial. Having said that, we’d take a Fincher-Clooney-Mulligan project any day of the week.

Niels Arden Oplev’s Swedish-language take on “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” meanwhile hits theaters March 19th.
