This seems like a strange bit of casting news: Carey Mulligan is reportedly signed on to star in a new Fox Searchlight film titled Stoker — but that's not the odd part. You ready for this? It's written by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller.
The story will center on a teenager (Mulligan) who reconnects with her uncle after the death of her father. The movie is attracting other big names, as well; Jodie Foster is in talks to costar, while Tony and Ridley Scott are eyeing producing credits. Well, I guess that makes Miller's screenplay legit! But I think there's a bigger concern here — between rumors of new projects plus her supposed role in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, how will Mulligan ever find the time?
