And even more news continuing on late into Friday evening. It sounds as if two of Hollywood’s top stars are looking to engage in some bitey activity in the new film from the director of Oldboy.
According to The L.A. Times both Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman (pictured right) are in talks to star in Chan-Wook Park’s Stoker.
Firth, the British actor receiving major Oscar buzz for his portrayal of King George VI in The King’s Speech, is negotiating to join the family mystery-drama that South Korean filmmaker Chan Wook-Park (Oldboy, Thirst) is making as his first English-language movie.
Nicole Kidman, herself gaining award season buzz for her turn as a grieving mother in Rabbit Hole, is also negotiating to come aboard in a lead part.
Penned by actor Wentworth Miller, Stoker tells of a girl and her mother who are visited by a mysterious uncle after the girl’s father dies. Kidman would play the mother and Firth the uncle. The Fox Searchlight film, which is being produced by Ridley Scott’s production company and will star Mia Wasikowska as the girl, India Stoker, is set to start shooting in late spring.
