Carey Mulligan will once again work with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn on ‘sex thriller’ I Walk With The Dead , according to The Hollywood Reporter (via The Playlist ).
The movie apparently has financing in place, and will shoot after the prolific Danish auteur’s next, Only God Forgives , a Thai boxing flick with Ryan Gosling.
Winding Refn is also developing a remake of Logan’s Run with Gosling.
I Walk With The Dead is dubbed a ‘sex thriller,’ but little is known about it in terms of plot. In an interview with The Playlist from a couple of years back, Winding Refn said, “I’ve always wanted to make a movie with lots of sex.
“So I wrote this story called I Walk With the Dead and it takes place in Miami and it’s just going to have a lot of sex in it. I have two films that are getting made with French investors and one is Only God Forgives and one is I Walk With the Dead .”
As Mulligan is still best known for good-girl roles in An Education , Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Never Let Me Go , this sounds like an opportunity for her to shed that image.
Mulligan is currently shooting Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby , and she has also completed work on Steve McQueen’s Hunger follow-up, Shame .
Drive opens in the UK on 23 September 2011.
