Cannes 2011: Mia Wasikowska talks Stoker

Actress gives TF her thoughts on new thriller

In Cannes to promote new movie Restless, Total Film caught up with Mia Wasikowska to ask her about her upcoming project, Stoker.

“I’m really excited about that,” she enthused. “The story is about a young girl whose father dies and then she has this strange dynamic with her mum and uncle. It’s a thriller/drama kind of film but it’s really exciting.”

Contrary to popular rumours, the film apparently has nothing to do with vampire writer Bram Stoker and is a completely original story – scripted by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller.

Co-starring heavyweight Oscar winners Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, Stoker also marks the English-language debut of Oldboy director Park Chan-wook – someone Wasikowska can’t wait to work with.

“I think he’s a fantastic director. He has such a strong vision and I think he’ll do something really interesting with the material. The script’s brilliant.”

Stoker is set to start shooting later this year for a 2012 release.
