Carey attended day one of the Dubai International Film Festival for the Opening Night Gala of The King’s Speech and we’ve uploaded photos for your viewing pleasure! More will be added once they come in.
Nothing that new with the exception of some small casting news in regards to the other main character but The Great Gatsby and Carey were mentioned in a recent interview with director Baz Luhrmann You can read the rest of the interview with Baz Luhrmann at the source.
“I’m so thrilled about Carey Mulligan [who’s been cast as Daisy]. She’s just fantastic, and now one has to match Jordan. They’re a couple in a sense. They reflect two completely different sides of a coin. And so the role of Jordan has to be as thoroughly examined as Daisy, for this production, for this time,” he tells EW. “It’s like Olivier’s Hamlet was the right Hamlet for his time. Who would Hamlet be today? Same with a Jordan or a Daisy” He doesn’t yet have a short list. “I’m seeing everyone,” he says. “What’s crucial about Jordan is that she is incurably dishonest, to quote Fitzgerald. She’s dishonest on an internal level, and she has an inability for self-realization. She’s a dangerous driver, to quote Fitzgerald again. And in the simple language, I think Jordan is also what, at the time, you might have referred to as a Long Island flapper, and now you might refer to them as a Hamptons flapper. That just means not a bohemian flapper that’s living the Village, but someone who’s attaching themselves to the fashionable aspects of flapperdom…. I don’t take it lightly at all. It’s my obsession at the moment. The connectivity between buying into, in a fashion sense, this new movement — a new liberation of women, a new sensibility, a youth that was absolutely drunk on money and possibility, the first ever American youth that was completely youthful — that is a thrilling subject.”
British actress Carey Mulligan is set to receive an honor at the Women in Film and TV Awards.
The star, 25, will be given the best performance award for her Oscar-nominated film An Education. Her new film Never Let Me Go will be released in the UK in January next year.
The event will be held at the Park Lane Hilton hotel in London and it will be hosted by British actress and Harry Potter star Julie Walters.
According to IrishCentral, Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan are set to star in a movie called Shame. The movie centers around Fassbender’s character who is unable to control his sex life.
Shame has been written by Steve McQueen and Abi Morgan and will center around Fassbender’s character, Brandon, his sexual escapades and what happens when his younger sister moves in with him. James Badge Dale, from The Pacific, will also star.
The movie will shoot in New York for six weeks starting in January 2011.
I’ve added three additional photos to Session 019 as well as a new/old photoshoot which I’m going to assume was taken on November 9th as Carey is wearing the same outfit and hairstyle as Session 023 and Session 025, just with a different background and lighting Thanks to Roberta for those!
Appearing in a small British indie film that makes a splash at the Sundance Film Festival would be considered a success for any actress. But for 25-year-old Carey Mulligan, her starring role in 2009’s An Education marked the beginning of an 18-month blur of red carpets and revelry.
“It sort of feels like none of it really ever happened,” says the actress, whose Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for that film propelled her to the top of many directors’ must-cast lists.
Looking back on the glitz and glamour, Mulligan says she would have liked to have been less nervous about the whole thing.
“It was a little bit scary,” she confesses. “In retrospect, I wish I’d just had a drink and had more fun.”
While industry rumors abound about Mulligan appearing in everything from Ridley Scott’s 3-D Alien prequel to Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, her roles in this year’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, directed by Oliver Stone, and Mark Romanek’s “Never Let Me Go” are keeping her on the minds of moviegoers and academy voters alike.
Despite the high-profile casting rumors, she insists that earning an Oscar nomination didn’t result in being buried in juicy scripts. It’s been a gradual build rather than an overnight shift.
