You can't go back to Bram Stoker's Dracula too many times, it seems.

Stoker, written by Wentworth Miller and to be directed by Chan-wook Park (Oldboy), is gearing up at Fox Searchlight to begin shooting in Nashville in late August. The cast is nothing short of impressive. Back in March we took a look at stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth (who was attached but has since been replaced by Matthew Goode) and Mia Wasikowska; Jacki Weaver and Dermot Mulroney have since come on board. The story follows a girl (Wasikowska) named India and her mother (Kidman) who are visited by a mysterious uncle (Goode) following the death of the girl’s father (Mulroney).
