Though genre programming appears to be looking a little thin at next year’s Sundance Film Festival, the good folks behind the yearly event have just announced that Fox Searchlight’s Stoker will premiere at the show, which takes place January 17-27 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.
Wentworth Miller (who also penned the tale as Ted Foulke), Mia Wasikowska, Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, Dermot Mulroney, Phyllis Somerville, and Alden Ehrenreich star in the film directed by Park Chan-wook.
Stoker is the first in a planned trilogy. Park Chan-wook is the Korean master of genre cinema, having directed Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Lady Vengeance, along with Thirst and JSA.
Look for the flick in theatres on March 1st, 2013. Check out a couple of new stills below.
After India’s (Wasikowska) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), whom she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.
