Fox Searchlight has locked down a March 1, 2013 release for Park Chan-wook’s english-language debut, Stoker, his vampire tale penned by Ted Foulke (aka Wentworth Miller). ET has shared a tease of the film’s trailer that puts the nasty Stoker family on display. This looks to have all of the good character development seen in Chan-wook’s Korean cinema.
Miller also stars alongside Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, Alden Ehrenreich, Phyllis Somerville and Dermot Mulroney.
“After India’s (Wasikowska’s) father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Goode), who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother (Kidman). Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.”
This is the first in a planned trilogy. Park Chan-wook is the Korean master of genre cinema having directed Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengenace and Lady Vengeance, along with Thirst and JSA.
