Alice in Wonderland star Mia Wasikowska is in negotiations to appear in a thriller called Stoker according to Deadline. What makes Stoker so special? The film’s screenplay was written by actor Wentworth Miller aka Michael from “Prison Break” aka Chris from Resident Evil: Afterlife.
Aside from Miller’s involvement, Chan-wook Park will direct the film that previously had Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster set to star. Unfortunately, neither of them are attached at this point. Stoker centers on “an eccentric teen whose enigmatic and estranged uncle returns to the family after the death of the girl’s father. Strange things begin to happen.”
This sounds like another tale about creepy uncles. Why do uncles always get the bad end of the stick? Miller also wrote Uncle Charlie, a prequel that explores another chapter in the history of a family with a knack for burying secrets as well as bodies. Someone’s really into this family!
Stoker will be produced by Tony and Ridley Scott. Wasikowska also stars in the period drama Jane Eyre, which is an adaptation of the popular novel of the same name. That film is due out later this year.
What do you think of Wasikowska joining Stoker? Is she the right fit?
