Stoker (2012 D: Park Chan-Wook) w. Kidman, Wasikowska, Goode

count me in the 'can't wait' column

"Stoker," the psychological thriller starring Mia Wasikowska, Matthew Goode and Nicole Kidman has started production in Nashville, Tenn.

Acclaimed Korean helmer Park Chan-wook ("Oldboy," "Thirst") is making his English-language debut from an original screenplay by the Wentworth Miller (star of "Prison Break"), who wrote under his pen name, Ted Foulke. Scott Free Productions’ Tony Scott, Ridley Scott and Michael Costigan are producing for Fox Searchlight Pictures

After India's (Wasikowska's) dad is killed in a car crash, her hiterto-unknown Uncle Charlie (Goode), moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). The lonely India starts to suspect Charlie of having diabolical plans, but can't help bonding with him. Sounds a bit like Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt."

Dermot Mulroney and Jacki Weaver are also set to star.

The director is enough to get me interested, and the cast is just icing on the cake. Should be interesting.

Oh cool Fox Searchlight. They'll let him do his thing for sure. That'd good.

Trailer:



...looks like a Korean flick, but in English. For some reason that's more jarring than I thought it'd be.

Is it R-rated and over two hours? Otherwise, why bother?

If it's got Kidman in it, it's must-see for me. Goddamn, she's good. The NY Observer just wrote a good piece on the polarity of her career to coincide with the NYFF honoring her this year.

Nice. Wentworth Miller wrote this, too.

Good trailer, brings up some mystique to get to you want more. Big fan of PCW.

Indeed. The trailer is ok, but the director/cast is enough for me to be excited. Plus: "Hey Stoker, or do you go by Stroker now... since that's what I hear your moms been doing...to your uncle!"

HA!

I remember it being in the trades a while ago and how he scored a deal. What was funny then was that it sounded like a total bore, but once Park got involved, I had to change my shorts.

Based on the title, I was expecting this to be a biopic about the author of Dracula.

Foulke’s Stoker, which has Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster attached, has gotten some ink.

^ Damn, he went from attracting talent to.. replacing it with equally impressive talent.

Surprised the father isn't played by Sean Bean.

New international trailer with a lot of new footage. This flick looks gorgeous.

Re: Stoker (2012 D: Park Chan-Wook) w. Kidman, Wasikowska, Goode

Still don't really know what to make of it. Part of me thinks it looks like a movie you'd pick up for $5 from Walmart, the other part of me thinks it looks like it could be solid.

It has some great ingredients to it and I think Park Chan-wook is a solid director so I'll give it benefit of the doubt.

This will have a Limited Release in the US on March 1st, 2013. We'll see how it does.

Now where's the trailer for Snowpiercer?
