Carey Mulligan to join Ryan Gosling in Drive
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Carey Mulligan looks set to be the female lead opposite Ryan Gosling in the upcoming action film DRIVE. In the movie, Gosling will play a professional stunt driver that moonlights as a heist getaway driver at night. But things get hairy when a contract is put on his life. Mulligan will play an ex-con that gets caught up in his adventure. The film will be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, who directed BRONSON.
Obviously, this sounds like THE TRANSPORTER, at least to an extent. So I have to assume that there’s more to the story than just the driver getting double-crossed. What’s interesting about DRIVE is that it features two very talented actors in lead roles. You’d probably expect to see these two in a Shakespeare adaptation before you’d expect to see them in a seemingly simple action film.
