A couple of months ago word surfaced that Wentworth Miller had written a script and that Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster were somehow involved. Now comes word that one of the finest directors working in the world says me, Park Chan-wook, is maybe looking to direct this script of Wenty's? Via LAT:
"Few directors get hardcore film fans excited as much as Park Chan-wook, the South Korean auteur behind the international favorite "Oldboy.".
Now those fans could get to see Park direct an English-language movie featuring major stars.
According to two people familiar with the film, Park is in talks to direct "Stoker," a dramatic thriller about a young woman whose eccentric uncle comes back into her life after the death of her father.
"Stoker," you may recall, is the first film from "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller, who penned the script in his other life as a screenwriter, and is being produced by Ridley and Tony Scott's company, as well as Carey Mulligan is playing the young woman, and Jodie Foster is costarring in the movie (the uncle part has yet to be cast, but it's likely to be a boldfaced name too, according to sources)."
