Mia Wasikowska in talks to star in Stoker
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Mia Wasikowska has her pick of films, recently she’s been able to choose between THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD (which will star Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jessica Chastain) and the upcoming thriller STOKER. After much deliberation, it looks like she has made her decision to go with STOKER and will work with director Chan-wook Park (OLDBOY and THIRST).The story centers on a teen whose uncle rolls back into town after the death of her father and then strange things start to happen. No word on when filming will start or when STOKER will be released.
Even though this film sounds like it could be average, with Park as the director it’s sure to have some really crazy stylization. It’ll be interesting to see Wasikowska in a role like this because, in my opinion, she has yet to do anything that has really showcased her acting ability. Both of her last two roles (ALICE IN WONDERLAND and THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT) were interchangeable in my mind and could have been played by anyone.
