Wentworth Miller Provides Disappointment
New screenplay to follow Stoker
His acting career has been modest since his breakout turn in Prison Break, but Wentworth Miller's writing career continues to gain momentum. Miller's Stoker, starring Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska, is currently in post-production, and it now emerges that another Miller script, The Disappointments Room, is on its way before the cameras.
Described as a "dramatic thriller", the new film involves a family moving into an old house in the country and discovering, rather late in the game, that it has a dark past. There must be more to it than that though, and it seems reasonable to assume that the odd-sounding room of the title is a big part of it. What could it mean? A torture chamber that plays Clash Of The Titans on a loop? Feel free to speculate in the comments below.
The Disappointments Room is coming together via Killer Films (I'm Not There, The Notorious Bettie Page) and Voltage Pictures, which has been responsible for the international sales of all of Steven Seagal's films in the last few years (for balance though, The Hurt Locker was theirs too). The project is now seeking a director.
Miller showed up in Resident Evil: Afterlife and an episode of House last year, but by the look of things, writing continues to be a priority. He's already got Stoker sequel Uncle Charlie in development.
