Carey Mulligan is currently in Toronto at tiff, the film festival, promoting Never Let Me Go and gave an update regarding the remake of My Fair Lady.
"It's not happening this year," she replied. "I've definitely spoken about it, and I would love to do it if it happens, but it's just not happening right now."
"I read the script and the script is incredible. Emma Thompson wrote it. It's telling the story again, in another way and not trying to sort of copy anything and not trying to take away anything from that version of it. It's just telling it in a new era to a new generation of people."
Mulligan went on to say that Wright is not directing and that it will instead by directed by John Madden (Shakespeare in Love, Mrs. Brown, Captain Corelli's Mandolin). And regarding her singing abilities, she said: "I can hold a tune, but not amazingly."[source]
Turns out that Mulligan is a Gleek! She was reportedly turned down after sending an audition of herself singing Belle and Sebastian's Write about Love. "I want to be in Glee, but I'm told I'm not famous enough to be a cameo."
I also read about the original ending for An Education and happy they didn't include
"I want you back — you’re still my Minnie Mouse, I’m still your Bubble-Lub.’ !!!
Images of Carey have also surfaced of her upcoming cover of October's issue of Vogue.
See video here of her photo shoot. (Thanks to Vic for heads up on the Vogue cover at Jane Austen's World)
Think there's a bit of hat overkill myself... but I do love Carey!
