Producer(s): Michael Costigan, Ridley and Tony Scott
U.S. Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Nicole Kidman, Dermot Mulroney, Matthew Goode, Jacki Weaver, Lucas Till, Alden Ehrenreich, Phyllis Somerville

Park Chan-Wook highly anticipated English language debut comes a great source: Stoker is another highly touted 2010 Blacklist screenplay (placed 5th) from first time scribe in actor Wentworth Miller.  The trailer, the images and Nicole Kidman so far all look sick. This is a good thing.

Gist: After India’s father dies, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her unstable mother. She comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives and becomes increasingly infatuated with him.

Release Date: Fox Searchlight managed to grab a Sundance Premieres showing just prior to the theatrical February 28th release date.
