Shoot is due to get underway this spring on the project from writer-director Fennel, show-runner on Killing Eve season two.
Oscar nominee Mulligan will play Cassie, a young woman haunted by a tragedy in her past, who begins exacting her own particular brand of revenge on the predatory men unlucky enough to cross her path. LuckyChap Entertainment, Emerald Fennell and FilmNation will produce.
The producers said, “We are excited to unleash Emerald Fennell’s dark and subversive vision on an unsuspecting public. Carey Mulligan is the perfect actress to draw the audience into Cassie’s world.”
Mulligan is repped by Julian Belfrage Associates, WME, Ziffren Brittenham and Relevant.
