If there is an ‘it’ girl of 2009, it will be Carey Mulligan. You can take that to the bank.

I believe it was my good friend Ed Douglas from who said it first this year during our time at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where the 24-year old British actress was a shining star in not one, but two of the fest’s more talked about films: The Greatest, in which her performance outshined everything and everyone around her; and An Education, the World Dramatic Competition Audience Award winning film that saw an award-worthy performance that will most likely launch her into the stratosphere. As well, Mulligan will find herself starring alongside Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies on July 1.

But that’s not all. According to the guys over at Latino Review, Mulligan has also been tapped to play the role of Winnie Gecko in the upcoming Wall Street sequel, Money Never Sleeps. And according to the report, Winnie will essentially be one of the film’s central characters:

Winnie Gecko plays a major part in the story as she is the fiancee of Jacob (Shia LaBeouf).  Winnie hasn’t spoken to her father Gordon (Michael Douglas) in 11 years while he was away in prison.  Winnie and Gordon’s relationship is estranged since she blames her father for the suicide of her brother Rudy.

The Oliver Stone directed sequel will begin shooting sometime later this summer, with a spring 2010 release date likely in the cards.
