Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster have both departed production of Park Chan-wook’s Stoker. But fear not – Alice In Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska is in talks to step in.
Scripted by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller under the pseudonym Ted Foulke, the film follows the death of a teenage girl’s father, and the sudden appearance of her uncle, who returns to be with the family.
Oldoy helmer Park has been involved for a while, with Mulligan and Foster both previously attached to roles.
Now that they’ve moved on, though, Deadline reports that Wasikowska is in talks to take on the lead part. As an interesting aside, this will be Park’s first English language film.
Shooting on Stoker begins this spring.
