Best known for her portrayal of the titular Alice in Tim Burton's Oscar-nominated (ugh) ALICE IN WONDERLAND, Mia Wasikowska is currently in talks to star in STOKER, directed by the brilliant South Korean director Chan-Wook Park (OLDBOY, THIRST). STOKER focuses on an eccentric teenager who reunites with her estranged uncle after the death of her father.

Wentworth Miller, who penned STOKER, also developed a prequel entitled UNCLE CHARLIE which delves into the family's history to uncover long lost secrets of murder and mayhem. Ridley and Tony Scott are on board as producers, and those two have a pretty good track record.

Originally, Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster were attached to STOKER, but this could prove to be a good role and career move for Wasikowska. After starring in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, the young actress could easily have fallen into the Disney machine, endlessly cranking out family friendly schlock. The fact that she is considering working with one of the most daring filmmakers in the world proves that her career path is one to keep an eye on.
