Britain’s lovely Carey Mulligan is set to take on the role of Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby’s return to the big screen!

The hype over who was to portray the sultry, manipulative Daisy on-screen has been brewing over the past few months. Everyone from Scarlett Johansson to Blake Lively was rumoured to be the first choice to play F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beautiful heartbreaker.

We can finally put the rumours to rest now that the role has finally been cast! Director Baz Luhrmann has officially chosen the Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps star as his leading lady for the film, set to begin shooting in early 2011.

Luhrmann told a source that he “was thrilled to pick up the phone an hour ago to the young Oscar-nominated, British actress Carey Mulligan and say to her: ‘Hello, Daisy Buchanan’.”

The actress is anticipated to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the film remake due to hit theatres in 2012.

Well we certainly fancy Baz’s decision in casting the lovely Ms. Mulligan for this role. Do you agree or were you rooting for another blond bombshell to take on the part of Daisy?
