Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive is currently garnering raves left and right, and he’s already got a stacked schedule of films lined up for the future. Refn’s set to start filming Only God Forgives with Drive star Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas and Luke Evans soon, he’s got a remake of Logan’s Run (also with Gosling) in the works, and now he’s found his lead for the sex thriller I Walk With the Dead. The director announced at the Deauvill Film Festival (via THR) that another Drive cohort, Carey Mulligan, will star in the already financed film.
We don’t know much about I Walk With the Dead, but Refn told The Playlist in 2009 that he wrote the pic because he had always wanted to “make a movie with lots of sex.” The flick apparently takes place in Miami and features copious amounts of bumpin’ uglies. Everything I’ve seen (and heard) from Drive has been fantastic, and Refn definitely has a penchant for thinking outside the box, so count me in.
