English actress Carey Mulligan, known for films such as Drive and Wildlife, is set to star in the thriller Promising Young Woman. The project will be directed by Emerald Fennell, who is an actress in shows like The Crown and showrunner on the second season of the Sandra Oh-led thriller series Killing Eve.
Promising Young Woman will follow Cassie (Mulligan), a young woman tormented by some form of tragedy from her past life. She then begins to get revenge on predatory men who happen to come into her way.
Fennell will also produce the picture along with LuckyChap Entertainment and FilmNation. Production is believed to begin sometime in the spring but there is very little known about the film as it remains in the early stages of development.
