“Promising Young Woman” Adds to its Cast

Carey Mulligan has been joined by some great talent. 

The previously announced lead of Promising Young Woman will star opposite Bo Burnham, Alison Brie, Connie Britton and Adam Brody in the forthcoming thriller. 

Also starring are Jennifer Coolidge, Laverne Cox, Max Greenfield, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Sam Richardson, and Molly Shannon.

The feature marks Emerald Fennell directorial debut. She is best known for her acting roles on Call the Midwife and The Crown. 

Mulligan stars as Cassie, “who everyone said was a promising young woman until a tragic event abruptly derailed her future. Now she’s a medical school drop-out, living at home with her worried parents and working at a coffee shop. It seems like she is at a standstill, except for the double life Cassie leads at night.”

Fennell is directing from her own script. She is also producing the project with FilmNation’s Ben Browning and Margot Robbie who is set to produce via her LuckyChap Entertainment banner.

Production began this week in Los Angeles.
