Carey Mulligan has stated that Nicolas Winding Refn’s all-female horror film I Walk With The Dead is still in the discussion phases as far as she knows.
“I don’t know what it is yet,” the Drive and Inside Llewyn Davis star told IndieWire. “That’s all in his mind.”
“I’ll go with him, I’ll go anywhere with him, because I think he’s just such a brilliant filmmaker, but that’s never been more than the two of us saying we’ll make a film together again.”
Mulligan revealed that she and Refn had started discussing the film while they were at work on Drive.
“I lived with him and his family when we were filming Drive, and we really liked working together and wanted to do something where I had more to do. And so he always talked about doing this film called I Walk With The Dead, and then he announced it at a film festival in a middle of an interview and it turned into a thing.”
“We’re in contact all the time, but we haven’t sat down to talk about what it’s going to be. I mean, it could happen in 10 years, but I hope it happens eventually. I’d love to work with him again.”
It was recently announced that Polly Stenham had been hired to write the film, so there is some active development. How quickly things move along remains to be seen.
