While she may be playing Gatsby's flapper-tastic gal-pal, Carey Mulligan will be shifting eras for her next project, "Inside Llewyn Davis."

Variety reports that the actress will be the female lead in the Coen Brothers' upcoming feature, which tells the story of a sixties folk singer struggling to make it in New York's Greenwich Village.

No word on whether or not this little birdy will sing, though her note-blasting "Shame" performance proves she's up to the challenge.

"Inside Llewyn Davis" will reunite the star with her "Drive" co-star, Oscar Isaac. So, singing, sixties and a tremendous amount of violence. Yes!
