The much-anticipated screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby" may have found its Daisy. According to an exclusive by Vulture, actress Carey Mulligan is the front-runner to play Daisy in the Baz Luhrmann-directed film.
The British star, who you might know from her Oscar-nominated turn in "An Education," is said to have done testing for the role in New York last week. Prior to Mulligan's name being put on the top of the list, Scarlett Johansson was said to be the front-runner, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby.
According to Vulture, Johansson's commitment to the Cameron Crowe film "We Bought a Zoo" would interfere with the filming schedule for "Gatsby," which is supposed to start shooting next summer.
