So, despite saying that she's planning on having a holiday pretty soon, Carey's looking to be pretty busy in the near future! From scouting around the internet (in particular, imdb
), I thought I'd post a list of some films and shows she's got coming up in the future.
- Brighton Rock
: the remake of the 1947 film of the same name
(adapted from a novel by Graham Greene) is apparently in post production, though I can't see a release date about. It's a gangster-based story, updated and set in the mod/rocker period of the 1960s. I'm not sure who Carey's character is, but the film also stars Helen Mirren, John Hurt and Andrea Riseborough, so it looks like a pretty stellar cast.
- Never Let Me Go
: Carey stars as Kathy opposite Kiera Knightley's Ruth and Andrew Garfield's Tommy (ohh, ginger!love) in a film about old public school friends reflecting on a dark shared history. No release date as yet.
- Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
: In the Oliver Stone direted gangster story, Carey plays the Winnie Gekko, the daughter of Michael Douglas' Gordon Gekko, and love interest of Shia LeBeouf's Jacob Moore (the two are dating in real life, too - that's Carey and Shia, not Carey and Michael). The release date is April 23rd.
- This Beautiful Fantastic
- Described on imdb as 'A contemporary fairy tale revolving around the unlikely love affair between a shy children's book author and a wild inventor', this is one I'm personally very excited about. The premise sounds adorable, and it also stars Christopher Ecclestone (!!) and Joanna Lumley. Again, no release date as yet.
- The Electric Slide
: Significantly more detai known about this one; Carey stars alongside Ewan McGregor (swoon!) as Jenny and Eddie, a pair of infamous bankrobbers.( Detailed synopsis under hereCollapse )
That information is from here
, which also features a poster for the film - near the bottom of the page.
- My Fair Lady
: After Kiera Knightley dropped out of this remake, Carey was 'rumoured' to be filling her spot. However, in recent interviews
, she has denied that she's involved. But you never know; since she had her hair cut short, quite a few people have been comparing her to Audrey Hepburn.
- Effie: Now, this one isn't on imdb as yet, but the same website
as before [slightly more towards the middle of the page] has claimed with some certainty that Carey will be starring as the lead in the story of Effie, the downtrodden wife of renowned Victorian art critic John Ruskin. The film is to be written by, and also to star, Emma Thompson (ZOMG, Carey and Emma in the same film, I may combust).( Detailed synopsis under hereCollapse )
Hope that's of interest to you all - sorry for the ridiculous length of the post! :)
ALSO: If anybody has any Carey icons thay'd like to post, please go ahead - I for one am very much lacking! :)
