If you had told us back in 2005 that the star of "Prison Break" was going to become one of the promising screenwriting talents in Hollywood, we would have said you were crazy. But that's just happened to Wentworth Miller. Under the pen name Ted Foulke (which he seems to have now abandoned), the actor wrote "Stoker" which quickly landed on the Black List, and then assembled a jaw dropping brace of talent with Park Chan-wook directing, and Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Alden Ehrenreich, Jacki Weaver and more starring. It's one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And now, he's got something else brewing.

Wentworth Miller

If you had told us back in 2005 that the star of "Prison Break" was going to become one of the promising screenwriting talents in Hollywood, we would have said you were crazy. But that's just happened to Wentworth Miller. Under the pen name Ted Foulke (which he seems to have now abandoned), the actor wrote "Stoker" which quickly landed on the Black List, and then assembled a jaw dropping brace of talent with Park Chan-wook directing, and Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska, Alden Ehrenreich, Jacki Weaver and more starring. It's one of the most anticipated movies of the year. And now, he's got something else brewing.

Voltage Pictures and Killer Films have picked up his latest script, "The Disappointments Room," and it's another interesting thriller from Miller. The story centers on 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. Yes, it seems like another old school style concept from Miller, but an intriguing one nonetheless.

Right now the project is out to directors, and give the heat "Stoker" brought, it should be attracting some serious attention. As for Wentworth Miller the actor, he'll next be seen in the thriller "Loft."
