‘Stoker’ To Make Goode Casting Choice

Chan-Wook Park solidified himself as one of the best directors of the last decade with the Vengeance trilogy, along with the pretty great Thirst and I’m a Cyborg, But That’s OK. With Mia Wasikowska and Nicole Kidman set to star and brothers Ridley and Tony Scott producing, his English language debut, Stoker, is beginning to look like a star-studded event.

Last we heard, Colin Firth was being courted for the lead male role in the film, which follows a teenage girl who must deal with the unexpected appearance of a mysterious uncle while mourning the death of her father. Variety just got word that Matthew Goode is in talks for the part. I got to admit, I haven’t seen a lot of Goode’s work, but he was spot on as Ozymandias in Watchmen.

The Fox Searchlight production is set to debut sometime in 2012.
