Wentworth Miller (“Prison Break”) surprised everyone when he wrote Stoker under a pseudonym because he was afraid the script wouldn’t be taken seriously otherwise. Turns out he was right, it’s a great script that might not have gotten a decent chance if had gone out as the writing project from “that guy from that TV show”. I imagine he doesn’t have this problem anymore as The Disappointments Room has just been announced.
Voltage Pictures (The Hurt Locker) is joining up with Killer Films (Mildred Pierce) for The Disappointments Room, Nicolas Chartier and Zev Foreman of Voltage will team with Killer’s Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon to produce. The film “is a dramatic thriller about a woman who moves into a mysterious old house in the country with her husband and young son, only to discover their new home comes with a dark past.”
The project is currently out to directors, but I doubt they’ll have much of a problem in that department. Meanwhile, Miller’s Chan-wook Park directed Stoker is still set for release later this year from Fox Searchlight. It stars Nicole Kidman, Dermot Mulroney and Wia Wasikowska.
