The third day of 2017 Sundance Film Festival was quite busy for Carey who continued the promotion of “Mudbound”. She also attended the 3rd Annual Horizon Award Presentation in Park City and was photographed for Deadline Hollywood Portraits with the cast of her movie. High-quality pictures can now be found in our gallery:

The 2017 Sundance Film Festival kicked off a few days ago, and as you may already know, Carey made her first appearance at the festival yesterday to promote “Mudbound“, the upcoming period drama also starring Garrett Hedlund & Jason Clarke. I have added high-quality pictures of Carey at the Variety Studio, as well as at the film’s premiere. A few shots from a portrait have also been added. Enjoy!
The Sundance Film Festival has unveiled the competition and lineup for its 33rd edition, which will take place at the beginning of next year, from January 19 to 29. We are delighted to see that Carey’s ‘Mudbound’, which also stars Jason Clarke and Garrett Hedlund, will be part of the festival. Along with the announcement, the first production still of Carey as Laura McAllan has been revealed – now available in our gallery.
In the post–World War II South, two families are pitted against a barbaric social hierarchy and an unrelenting landscape as they simultaneously fight the battle at home and the battle abroad. This epic pioneer story is about friendship, heritage and the unending struggle for and against the land.
Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Jason Mitchell are in negotiations to star in the indie drama “Mudbound.”
“Bessie” director Dee Rees is directing the film. Cassian Elwes (Elevated), Charles King (Macro), Kim Roth, Sally Jo Effenson Chris Lemole, Tim Zajaros and Carl Effenson are producing. Poppy Hanks will exec produce. MACRO will co-finance with Zeal. Good Universe is selling foreign rights.
Virgil Williams (“Criminal Minds”) penned the screenplay based on Hillary Jordan’s 2008 novel of the same name. It revolves around a city worker in a WWII-torn country who relocates his family to a failing Mississippi farm and is forced to overcome insurmountable hardships, including his brother’s return from war.
No distributor is currently attached, with producers planning to showcase the package in the coming weeks.
Mulligan has always had an eye for prestige pics with such as “An Education,” “Shame” and “Never Let Me Go” and looks to have found another strong role given the pedigree around it. She was most recently seen in “Suffragette” and “Far From the Madding Crowd.”
