NEWS: Kidman and Firth negotiate to join 'Stoker'

12 February 2011

Rabbit Hole star Nicole Kidman and The King's Speech star Colin Firth are both in talks to join Chan-wook Park's new film for Fox Searchlight and Scott Free, titled Stoker, according to Dark Horizons.

Scripted by Prison Break actor Wentworth Miller, the film is a family-based drama about a young woman (Mia Wasikowska, who is also about to star in John Hillcoat's new film) who is reacquainted with an eccentric uncle following the death of her father. Firth would play the uncle while Kidman is set for the role of the woman's mother.

Shooting is scheduled for a spring start, and the film will be director Park's first English-language feature, following the likes of Oldboy and Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance.
