Colin Firth Joins "Oldboy" Director's "Stoker" Mystery Film

Posted: February 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Colin Firth Joins "Oldboy" DirectorSubmit Comment
Colin Firth will likely win the Best Actor Oscar for his role in "The King's Speech" and is currently being flooded with offers for movies. LA Times has learned that he has decided what he will do next, and it's "Stoker," the first English-language film by "Oldboy" director Chan Wook-Park.

Penned by actor Wentworth Miller ("Prison Break"), "Stoker" tells of a girl (Mia Wasikowska) and her mother who are visited by a mysterious uncle after the girl's father dies. Nicole Kidman is in talks to play the mother and Firth the uncle.

The Fox Searchlight film will begin shooting in late spring. Both Firth and Kidman will first meet with Park in LA this week to discuss their roles.

Take the money and run Firth..I would if I were in your shoes.

I would prefer if Wook-Park made his movies in Korea. I doubt Hollywood will give him enough free reign to make the as he wants it.

If this movie works out well, I hope Miller gets due credit and isn't just shuffled to the back.

Colin Firth is a solid actor, love Chan Wook-Park, but Freudian_Nightmare is right how much freedom will the studio give him? i just hope he gets noticed even more here in the states.

"but Freudian_Nightmare is right how much freedom will the studio give him?"

It's FOX Searchlight, so a smaller budget generally equals more artistic freedom, which makes sense.

@Mink- i hope so.

I hope so too, because that's why Searchlight exists, really: low budget films that may turn a profit on the execution of a concept alone. The only thing is that this is still Fox, and we know how heavyhanded they can be with films, but that may only apply to the big-budget disasters they produce every year.

Also, I think the thing people have missed, maybe, is that Nicole Kidman is set to appear, so given that she's BO poison, (nearly every film in which appears dies quick and painfully) I worry she may be the worst part of this deal, not Fox.
