Carey Mulligan fears she may lose out in a bid to win the lead role in a new version of My Fair Lady - to her good friend Keira Knightley.

Emma Thompson, who is writing the script for the new film, had previously hinted the An Education actress had signed up for the role - but Carey now says the project has "gone away for a while" and might not happen.

Carey said at the Cannes Fim Festival: "I think we're all aware that we're all reading the same things. She's [Keira] eons higher up than I am. She's much higher. There's a chain of people that get offers before you do, and she's much higher in that chain."

She went on: "So I kind of think that if she rejects it, then I might get it. You never really know where you stand. Your agent doesn't ring-a-ding and go, 'Well, five people turned it down, so what do you think?'"
