Twenty-four-year-old Academy-Award nominee, Carey Mulligan is set to star in a remake of My Fair Lady.
Emma Thompson, the actress who wrote the script for the film, revealed the casting decision at the premiere of the Nanny McPhee sequel, The Telegraph reported.
"I think Carey is set to play it, yes," Thompson told BBC Five Live, adding she would like Hugh Grant to play the role of Henry Higgins, the male lead.
"I love Hugh so I'd love him to do it," Thompson said. "He might want to, he might not want to, so we don't know yet. But hopefully we'll make it later this year."
Keira Knightley is said to have been attached to the film but is rumored to have pulled out.
