Nicole Kidman & Colin Firth: 'Stoker' Stars?

Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth are both in talks to join the mystery-drama Stoker, the L.A. Times reports.

The film, written by Wentworth Miller and helmed by South Korean filmmaker Chan Wook-Park, centers around a girl and her mother who are visited by a mysterious uncle after India’s father dies.

Nicole would play the mother with Colin as the uncle and Mia Wasikowska as the girl, India Stoker.

Colin has also signed on to star in the Joel and Ethan Coen-scripted remake of Gambit with Cameron Diaz.

Wow first script and Colin might sign to play in it ?!! Damn Went !

wow really good combination of great stars*-*

Negotiations? I hope they sign the contract. I want to watch them in this film of Wentworth Miller. All have proved their worth and we will be rewarded with their performances. Thanks JJ.

Wonderful news..Nicole does have a way with spooky scrips- and Colin is always perfect in what ever he does. Hope they both sign.

Nicole, didn’t you just say you were “taking a COMPLETE break from work” to “totally focus on all things family only”?? For “six months” … that surely includes being in “talks” and then prepping long before filming begins, even if it is “this Spring”.

Great news, two talented actors will play together, i hope they both sign the contract.

oh this is super news! thanx jj!

kudos to dear wenty! he’s such a brilliant man…

@all: I’d also like to know when she is taking time off for her family, and she did say it would be for six months. Not seeing it. Not impressed by her at all. Poor baby.

All and BB

I don’t believe this is slated to film until late spring and if it follows the usual filming schedule–it will probably be a six week shoot.

Most women return to work six weeks after having a baby. Nicole and Keith both have family that helps out, nannies etc. and she brings the kids to the set.

I say go for it Nicole.

yay Nicole and Collin!

@dani:

if it films next spring, there is LOTS of work/talks etc on and around it now thru to cameras rolling; even non-film people know that. Her statement about ‘totally completely focussing only on family for the next 6 months’, (with already the awards’ season sucking out a big chunk of that), is her usual pile of BS! Add to that prep for SBOY now thru to Fall. Once again, Nicole, stop treating your audience with such little respect, thank-you. Do what you like, but be honest!

Love Nicole & Colin….

@all:

Well that was nice of you . Giving your permision and all LMAO

All

Name me one actor/actress who has sacrificed award season appearances for their family. I can’t think of one. That includes Sandra Bullock who had a newborn.

First off, her appearances for awards season take no more than an hour to six hours here and there. To not appear would probably be the death of her career in terms of the bigwigs giving her the respect she has earned.

Secondly, she seems to spend more time at home than many of the actors out there. Having worked as crew on documentaries and a few indies, I can tell you filming is basically a few moments on camera followed by many hours of down time. This is what people don’t understand. She may have a day where she films 8 hours, but most days she will most likely be in front of the camera far far less which means she has plenty of time for her kids. However, she has to be there in case a retake is needed or the director changes his mind.

People once had an article on Mary Tyler Moore surrounded by her needlepoint pillows that she had done while filming the Mary Tyler Moore show. There must have been at least a hundred. This probably equated to at least 30 minutes or so per square inch if the holes were small. Think about it. Each pillow is at least 12×12 (meaning 144 square inches or 16×16. To finish that many pillows means there was a lot of down time.

Yes Nicole tends to say I’m going to focus on family, but is this any different from Bullock going from meeting to meeting without Louis? Or any other A list actress that states this? No it is not. They wouldn’t be A list without the drive and ambition to get them there. Look at TomKat–they always talk about how important family is, yet they have dragged Suri from set to set and seem to be apart quite frequently for weeks at a time. Yet I don’t see people criticizing them for being apart, for working etc.

There seems to be such hatred against Nicole for doing and saying basically the same things every other actor in Hollywood does and says.

Just sayin’.

Nicole ruins every movie she is in.

@boston61:

Well that is an intelligent remark. Do you like being looked at as stupid?

The 53rd annual Grammy awards ceremony begins Sunday 8 p.m. ET.

Another chance to see Keith and Nicole!

WTG for this wonderful happy time in their lives. They have it all!
