Ewan McGregor and Carey Mulligan are not doing a dance, but they're signing up for a new film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, McGregor and Mulligan are in negotiations to star in The Electric Slide.
The film is based off the true story of a Los Angeles furniture salesman named Eddie Dodson who became a bank robber. Dodson owned a pricey furniture boutique on Melrose Ave. and lived a glitzy lifestyle in the 80s. When he fell in love with his new girlfriend, he took a huge risk trying to impress her and robbed a bank. Dodson robbed 72 banks in the L.A. area before the FBI apprehended him. McGregor is in talks to portray Dodson while Mulligan is in talks to portray his new love.
Tristan Patterson wrote the script, based off Timothy Ford's article in Gear magazine entitled "The Yankee Bandit: The Life and Times of Eddie Dodson, World's Great Bank Robber." Patterson will also make his directorial debut on the film.
