Carey Mulligan Joins “Nancy and Danny”

Carey Mulligan (“Drive,” “Shame”) is in negotiations to join “Man on a Wire” director James Marsh’s blackly comic thriller “Nancy and Danny” at Indian Paintbrush says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story concerns a money-hungry woman (Mulligan) whose big-city dreams failed. She ends up using a hapless man as a pawn in a get-rich-quick scheme that quickly goes wrong.

Brad Inglesby wrote the script while Alexandra Milchan, Steven Rales, Mark Roybal and Todd Field are producing.
