For a while, Carey Mulligan's name was circling David Fincher's remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But now that Rooney Mara has that gig, it's time for the An Education star to look elsewhere. Though she's got Violet and Daisy (think Thelma and Louise-meets-Superbad-meets-Pulp Fiction), On Chesil Beach (a honeymoon drama), and Stoker (with Jodie Foster) on the way, Mulligan is looking for some bigger thrills.

Instead of playing a tattooed hero battling misogyny, Mulligan is negotiating to co-star in Drive, an action thriller that's been in the works since 2006.
