While Carey Mulligan is currently filming her upcoming 4-part BBC TV Mini-series, Collateral and pregnancy (her second one, if confirmed...congrats to her!) rumors are also being reported as she was spotted with a baby bump on set.

Carey Mulligan to Star as Vietnam War Correspondent in 'On the Other Side'

The Oscar-nominated actress ('An Education') also will produce the Topic film based on the true story of Kate Webb, who was held in captivity by the Vietcong for 23 days.

Carey Mulligan will star as a Vietnam war correspondent in the film On the Other Side for Topic, First Look Media's newly branded entertainment studio.

Based on the book On the Other Side: 23 Days With the Vietcong, the true story centers on Kate Webb, a trailblazing journalist for UPI who would pave the way for all female war correspondents. Surviving fierce battles and 23 days of captivity, she emerged from the jungles of Cambodia armed with one of the most unlikely stories to come out of the Vietnam War.

"As one of the few women reporters to cover the Vietnam War, Kate Webb endured and ultimately survived the most harrowing experiences a war correspondent could ever face," First Look president Michael Bloom said in a statement. "In a time where journalism is being tested today, we're excited that Carey will portray this fearless woman and look forward to partnering with her, Margot and Edet to bring this incredible story to life."

Added Mulligan: "I'm so excited to bring Kate Webb's remarkable story to the screen. Her integrity, curiosity about the unknown and tenacity set her apart from many other journalists of her time and ultimately saved her life. In a world of increasing division, I can't think of a more relevant character to portray today — someone whose very survival depended on her desire to understand the other side of the story, to obtain the truth and to report it faithfully. It is an honor to embark on this project with such a talented team of producers."

The film is set to begin production in spring 2018.

Mulligan was nominated for an Oscar and won a BAFTA for her breakout role in An Education. She has gone on to star in such films as Shame, Suffragette and Far From the Madding Crowd. The British actress is currently in production on David Hare's BBC project Collateral, which is set to debut in November. Mulligan will next be seen in Mudbound, directed by Dee Rees, which made its world premiere at Sundance in January. (Netflix plans to release the awards-season hopeful in the fall.) She has also recently wrapped production on Wildlife, opposite Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Paul Dano.
