Carey Mulligan as new Eliza Doolittle?


British actress Carey Mulligan is going to take a stab at playing Eliza Doolittle in a remake of the 1964 Audrey Hepburn classic “My Fair Lady.”

At least, that’s what actress Emma Thompson, who has written the new version of the film, is saying.

“I think Carey is set to play it, yes,” Thompson tells BBC Five Live.

According to the Daily Telegraph in London, Hugh Grant is being considered for the role of Henry Higgins, which, everyone knows, was originally performed by Rex Harrison.

The Telegraph noted that Keira Knightley, who has been mentioned for the role of Eliza, is believe to have pulled out.
