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.

    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”.

    dani Says:

    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.

    @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!

    dani Says:

    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’.

    Jennifer, false rumor. Last July he told Movieline, “As soon as I was done with both scripts, I really just wanted to hand them off to someone else and say, “See you at the premiere,” then show up and get my big bucket of popcorn and watch someone else’s interpretation of what I’ve laid out on the page.”

    Winter's Bone Says:

    Jodie Foster was supposed to play the role Kidman is playing but unlike Kidman who will put role after role before her family, Foster won’t make films back to back and she’s already making Carnage and Elysium so she had to drop out. Pity because she’s a real actress. Nicole Kidman ruins any film she’s in because she doesn’t look or act real, so it takes me out of the story.

    @Winter’s Bone:

    So now it’s Jodie Foster instead of Diane Lane or Meryl Streep. You people are ridiculous. If you actually saw some of their movies would wouldn’t be propping them up every time to try and bash Nicole. Meryl’s a “real” actress who doesn’t do sex scenes or nudity. Have you guys seen Silkwood or Plenty? Have you seen Big Town or Unfaithful?

    Here’s another truth for you. Nicole blew out her knee on Moulin Rouge which pushed back the start date of Panic Room. After about 3 weeks of filming Panic Room Nicole hurt her other knee. Jodie Foster stepped up because she got injured on Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys. She already had one child and then discovered she was pregnant again. She still did Panic Room which is a very very physical film. Nicole made a cameo as her husband’s new wife on the phone.

    Jodie has a career and kids. She did step back her production company but Nicole’s is just herself and one other person. They’ve both forged her own path. The only difference is Jodie will never marry a man the haters want to be with. Grow up ladies!

    Colin is great, Nicole is great. I hope they decide to do the film. They are both so talented.

    a brain dead squirrel on life support has more intelligence than you do. Nicole said she was taking 6 months off from filming not from talking to people. she is very good at multi-tasking which is something you obviously have to look up. now be a good troll and stop trying to run her life.

    tell me, is there anyone you like other than yourself? you don’t like Nicole that’s ok. i doubt that someone as nice, generous, and as kind as she is would want anything to do with a vicious troll like yourself. as for acting, well idiot, Nicole could end up winning the oscar for best actress again. tell me, how many awards for anything have you won?

    Eve Says:

    The harder they try the more the skeptics step it and ruin their own argument. So Winter’s Bone…a kid goes looking for her drug dealing father. Blue Valentine…the breakup of a marriage with adult language and heavy sexual content. Nothing wrong with that unless you’re a skeptic. Problem is Mimosa, who play Morality Monitor, goes spouting off on what movies and actresses are deserving without seeing any of them first/

    Blue Valentine, in Mimosa’s words, is “so wonderful”. Guess what Mimosa, Michelle Williams is filmed on the toilet, something you screamed was porn when Nicole Kidman did it in Eyes Wide Shut. Shower scene, oral s.ex scene in Blue Valentine too.

    Mimosa is beyond help. She’s a hypocrite, an idiot, and a liar. She can’t even be honest about how long she’s been a Keith fan. Let’s hope she’s full of crap that she wants foster kids in her home because of Jimmy Wayne. Women over 50 who post on message boards that a baby they’ve never had any contact with is mentally challenged and has birth defects because they hate the mother is deeply deeply disturbed.

    Winter's Bone Says:

    @Eve: I never said anything about Diane Lane or Meryl Streep. And I already knew that Kidman injured her arm and Jodie Foster got the role in Panic Room after that. Thank God for that, otherwise it would have just been Nicole being weak as hell the entire movie “help me! help me” in that annoying soft baby voice of hers. When I said she’s not a real actress, I’m not talking about her taking off her clothes. I’m talking about her botoxing her face to death, plumping her lips up to the point where if I see her in a movie playing a regular mom, it’s a problem for me because no one is going to believe she’s just a regular mom when she looks like a hollywood victim.

    And Jodie Foster, Diane Lane, and Meryl Streep are more real onscreen in their acting than she is. Not everyone has to like Nicole. And I don’t give a crap who she was married to. If I think she’s an overrated, hack actress who messed up her face due to her vanity, then that’s my opinion.

    @Winter’s Bone:

    Eve, you give a crap who she married. There’s no other reason why you would hate a stranger enough to spend so much negative energy complaining about her. Not only are you delusional, you think the rest of the world is stupid. Your motives are crystal clear to anyone who reads your crap under whatever name you choose. Keith loves Nicole and everything about her. He loves her appearance. He loves that she works. He loves her height. He understands her reasons for not having her two adopted children with her. Nothing you say will ever change that. So, if wasting your time for no productive reason is okay with you – fine.

    Miyako Says:

    @sheis:

    Of course they care who she married, otherwise any normal person would skip over anything in the media about an actress they don’t care for. You wouldn’t search for any & all articles about Nicole, and negative comments you can post on E from all your multiple user names on Dlisted. The constant slams to Nicole’s appearance are another dead giveaway. If it was just that you thought she was a terrible actress, that would be where your comments were focused. Not the case, because it’s the whole KUNK love story that’s been under their skin & won’t go away, so making fun of them like junior high girls is their sick routine.
