LATimes 24 Frames says, following Never Let Me Go, Fox Searchlight has signed Carey Mulligan to star in a second film for the specialty division.
The company of “Juno” and “Little Miss Sunshine” is developing a new movie titled “Stoker,” with Mulligan in talks to star. The kicker? The project is written by “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller.
“Stoker” tells of an eccentric teenager whose enigmatic and estranged uncle returns to the family after the death of the girl’s father. And the company is adding some more boldfaced names from across the pond: Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free Productions is in talks to produce. Searchlight is also in talks with Jodie Foster to costar with Mulligan.
