Would Carey Mulligan Be Loverly in My Fair Lady?

By  · Published on September 14th, 2010

It seems like there’s no reason to remake My Fair Lady, but if there’s going to eventually be a re-telling of the rags to vocal riches story, then it might as well feature Carey Mulligan. The casting is far from being a done deal, but the actress recently expressed interest in the project and praised the script written by Emma Thompson.

Mulligan proved her singing abilities by appearing on a track by Belle and Sebastian, but the remake project ‐ now in the hands of Shakespeare in Love director and part-time football commentator John Madden ‐ won’t be happening anytime soon. At least not this year. In other words, it gives the audience a chance to see the original at least one and a half times before production starts. [Worst Previews]
