After a careful amount of consideration, which probably involved a lot of chin stroking and tea drinking (because that’s what Brits do, right?! Nuck nuck nuck!), Oscar-nominated British actor Colin Firth has decided to take on his next project: South Korean filmmaker Chan Wook-Park‘s first English-language film, Stoker. Plus, also signing on for the film? Nicole Kidman. And Mia Wasikowska has also already signed on to the project.
Stoker is a dramatic family film that focuses on a girl and her mother who are visited by an unknown uncle after the girl’s father passes away. Firth will play the uncle with Kidman handling the role of the mother. The film is written by Wentworth Miller, who you may have seen in Fox’s Prison Break, and will be produced by Ridley Scott’s production company.
So, yes. Like we said: be excited.
