Carey Mulligan joining Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Great Gatsby”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It sounds like Baz Luhrmann has plucked his Daisy Buchanan.

After weeks of workshopping a script for “The Great Gatsby” — with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire reading the parts of Gatsby and Nick, respectively – Carey Mulligan of “An Education” and “Never Let Me Go” has landed the coveted female lead, according to Deadline.

It goes without saying that this is another big step for Mulligan as she continues to build her acting resume. After receiving such heat for “An Education,” which earned her an Oscar nomination, she has appeared in Mark Romanek’s romantic sci-fi effort as well as Oliver Stone’s “Wall Street” sequel. She’ll next be seen in the action thriller “Drive” with Ryan Gosling and Christina Hendricks.

But it’s “Gatsby” that could put Mulligan right back into the awards limelight and give her the best chance to sharpen her acting chops alongside DiCaprio, who last collaborated with Luhrmann on “Romeo + Juliet.”
