Carey Mulligan In Talks For Stoker
And Jodie Foster may join too?

28 June 2010  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: 24 Frames

Carey Mulligan recently starred in Never Let Me Go for Fox Searchlight, and now she's in talks to return to the mini studio for a new film called Stoker with Jodie Foster in talks to join her. No, as far as we know it has nothing to do with Dracula. But the weird part is who wrote the script.

You see, this story about an eccentric teenager and the estranged uncle who returns to the family after her father's death was written by Wentworth Miller. Yes, Prison Break's Wentworth Miller. And you thought he was a himbo. Well, apparently not: Fox Searchlight are talking to Scott Free about producing the movie, so they're clearly serious about making this an arthouse hit.

There's no director on board so far, and of course much will depend on who they get to play the pivotal uncle role - and indeed on whether Mulligan and Foster sign up - but it does sound like this might be worth keeping an eye on, if only because Fox are aiming pretty high with the talent.

Wentworth Miller. Huh.
