Mia Wasikowska Joins 'Stoker', Jodie Foster & Carey Mulligan Drop
Initially we heard director Ridley Scott might helm Stoker a story scripted by "Ted Foulke" which tells the story of a moody teenager whose mysterious uncle comes back into her family's lives after the death of her father. Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster were attached to star and it seemed like the leading ladies were still attached when Park Chan-wook came on board to direct the film. But now Deadline reports Foster and Mulligan have dropped out of the project and Chan-wook will instead be directing Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) in the dramatic thriller which is still being produced by Ridley Scott's production banner
Wasikowska will play the eccentric teen in this script from Wentworth Miller, the star of the ended series "Prison Break" (the aforementioned writer's name "Ted Foulke" is a pseudonym). Now we'll have to wait and see who will take the older female role in the film, not to mention the mysterious uncle. Likely big names will be brought on board if Foster and Mulligan were attached before. Also having Oldboy director Park Chan-wook is certainly enticing. Count me interested for now and looking forward to some good casting updates down the road. How about you?

For a second, I thought this was going to be a modern remake of Stoker Ace... that would've been cooler.

I think you mean "Stroker Ace." And the less said about that, the better.

This girl is really improving. I like that. I can't believe the scrip is Miller's. I thought he was just smart in Prison Break. I guess he not just a pretty face 😉
