Carey Mulligan accelerates with ‘Drive’

HollywoodNews.com: Carey Mulligan is moving on after being turned down for the role of Lisbeth Salander in the U.S. remake of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

Ricky Business and Collider are reporting that Mulligan is pole positioning herself in the Ryan Gosling headliner “Drive” which is set to be helmed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

Bryan Cranston also stars in the film. “Drive” based on the James Sallis novel is about a robbery getaway driver. Mulligan will play the femme fatale part of the ex-con’s girlfriend who winds up in Gosling’s car when he learns there’s a bounty on his head.

It is not clear at this time who Cranston will play.

Mulligan, who was nominated for a best actress Oscar last year for “An Education,” will star in this fall’s Oliver Stone sequel “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” as well as the Fox Searchlight period piece “Never Let Me Go.”

Mulligan is also scheduled to star in “Violet & Daisy” with Saoirse Ronan (“The Lovely Bones”) and Sam Mendes’ “On Chesil Beach.”
