Dermot Mulroney is the latest addition to the already talent-packed cast of Park Chan-wook's upcoming English-language debut, an adaptation of the Wentworth Miller-penned "Stoker."
The Black Listed script is described as a fantastical, fairy tale-like family drama that follows the story of "an eccentric teen, India (Mia Wasikowska), whose enigmatic and estranged uncle (Matthew Goode) returns to the family after the death of the girl’s father. People, however, start to go missing in her hometown at the same time and she soon discovers that her uncle may be the cause." Mulroney will play India's father, who is seemingly the catalyst for much of the events of the story.
Park's certainly loading up on talent for the transition to Hollywood here with his cast also featuring Nicole Kidman as India's mother, Alden Ehrenreich and Lucas Till as two fellow high school classmates of India's and Jacki Weaver, whose role is currently unknown. It'll be very intriguing to see how this project unfolds and what the famed South Korean helmer can conjure up.
Shooting on the Fox Searchlight project begins later this month in Nashville. [THR]
