It's still too early to tell if we'll see the cast of "X-Men: First Class" in their mutant guises again. While the superhero prequel was well-received, the box office was somewhat underwhelming, with Matthew Vaughn's film turning out to be the lowest-grossing of the five installments so far (domestically at least), and, while "Thor" already has a sequel dated, word's been suspiciously quiet on a possible 'First Class' follow-up from the studio. Nevertheless, the young cast aren't doing too badly off it: James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender cemented their places on the A-list with their turns, Jennifer Lawrence bagged the much-sought-after lead in "The Hunger Games," and Nicholas Hoult is filming another tentpole, Bryan Singer's "Jack The Giant Killer." And now, one more of their cast mates has bagged a new role, in what's shaping up to be one of the most intriguing projects of 2012.

Mia Wasikowska Also ConfirmedEarlier this year, a screenplay by Ted Foulke (Wentworth Miller’s sobriquet) called "Stoker" made the rounds and started gaining buzz. It became a hot property and Scott Free Productions quickly snatched up the film that’s now set up at Fox Searchlight. "Oldboy" helmer Park Chan-Wook became attached to direct and early casting rumors had Carey Mulligan, Mia Wasikowska and Jodie Foster in talks for roles, but it looks like the film is getting two massive heavyweights on board as well.
