CAREY Mulligan is reportedly in talks to star in new black comedy thriller Nancy and Danny.

The film would follow a money-hungry woman (to be played by Mulligan) who has been forced to relocate to a small town after her big-city dreams failed.

In order to land a high school crush, she uses a hapless man as a pawn in a get-rich-quick scheme that inevitably goes wrong.

James Marsh, the filmmaker behind the acclaimed documentaries Man On Wire and Project Nim as well as the excellent forthcoming thriller Shadow Dancer, is on board to direct from a script by Brad Ingelsby.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mulligan has pursued the part.

She’ll next be seen in The Great Gatsby, the Baz Luhrmann-directed adaptation which recently saw its release date move from December to summer 2013.
