It's been reported that Colin Firth (The Kings Speech) and Nicole Kidman are in talks to join Chan Wook-Park's (Oldboy) first English language film Stoker, which was writter by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller.
Stoker is described as a drama about a young woman whose eccentric uncle comes back into her life after the death of her father. Then strange things begin to happen. Firth would play the uncle and Kidman would play the mother. Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) is also attached to the film project, and she will play the main young woman character in the story.
It was also reported last year thay when Miller sold the script he had also written a prequel to the story called Uncle Charlie, which "explores another chapter in the history of a family with a knack for burying secrets as well as bodies." That kind of give you a better idea of where this movie might be heading.
The film is being produced by Ridley and Tony Scott through Fox Searchlight Pictures whish has great taste in films. Ultimately it would be great to see Firth join the film project, I could care less about Kidman, but if she takes it I'm sure she'll do just fine.
I'm just looking forward to seeing what Park and Wentworth are going to create for us.
