Colin Firth Signs Up For New Vampire Movie

Colin Firth Signs Up For New Vampire MovieJust when you thought the latest wave of vampire movies and TV series had reached saturation point there comes another movie to add to the list. It’s called “Stoker” and it will be the first American film for “Oldboy” Korean director Park Chan-Wook. So far the film has a very promising cast, it has been reported that Oscar winner Colin Firth has signed up to the film. So has fellow Oscar winner Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska has also been added to the cast.

Not too much has been revealed about the project at this stage and it won’t necessarily be a typical vampire story. The title “Stoker” does relate to Bram Stokers classic vampire story “Dracula” but in this movie it is the surname of two of the main characters, mother and daughter, played by Kidman and Wasikowska.

The script has been written by “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller. Miller has been quoted after speaking with Yahoo! about the script;

“It’s got a lot of elements of the Dracula mythology in its story… It’s not a vampire story. It’s not about vampires at least with the teeth and the desire to suck your blood but it is a thriller and it is about an individual who preys on the innocent.”

Let’s hope the resulting film is as intriguing as it sounds so far.
