Nicole Kidman Stoker Role. Nicole Kidman lands stoker role. The award winning actress has had a very productive summer.
In addition to going peroxide blonde for her part in the upcoming thriller Paperboy, the 44-year-old Moulin Rouge star has been cast in the lead role for another spine-chiller – Stoker. Stoker, a Park Chan-Wook directed film slated for release sometime in 2012, tells the story of an eccentric teen, India, whose enigmatic and estranged uncle returns to the family following the death of the girl’s father. When people mysteriously start to go missing in her hometown at the same time, India begins to believe that her uncle may be the cause.
According to Indiewire, Kidman is set to play the role of the little girl’s mother and will be joined by a heavy hitting array of talent including Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, and Mia Wasikowska. While very few details are known about the film, we can expect that Chan-Wook – whose other films such as Oldboy and Thirst are famous for their immaculate framing, brutal subject matter, and epic twists – has more than a few surprises up his sleeve.
Stoker is set to follow a young girl (Mia). In the midst of mourning her recently departed father, she is faced with dealing with her strange uncle (Goode) who mysteriously shows up to meet the family. Not a ton to go on but it sure is a strange enough premise to pique my interest.By: Jennifer Hong
