Carey Mulligan could soon be adding the Coen Brothers and Spike Jonze to the list of directors she's worked with.
The Oscar-nominated actress is apparently in talks to star in their upcoming films, including Ethan and Joel Coen's indie music film Inside Llewyn Davis and Spike's as-yet-untitled movie, reported Variety.
For Inside Llewyn Davis, which is scheduled to start shooting in New York City in February 2012, Oscar Isaac has been cast in the lead role of American folk singer Dave van Ronk, who led the Greenwich Village music scene of the 1960s alongside Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell.
Joaquin Phoenix is already attached to appear in Spike's untitled project, marking their third time working together, following 1999's Being John Malkovich and Adaptation. The film, which is gearing up for production in spring 2012, is said to be a satire about world leaders who get together to discuss seismic events.
Since her award-winning performance in An Education, Carey - who starred opposite Ryan Gosling in Drive and the upcoming Shame alongside Michael Fassbender - can already count the list of filmmakers including Oliver Stone (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) and Baz Luhrmann (The Great Gatsby).
