Matthew Goode is in talks to take the male lead in Stoker, it has been reported.

The Watchmen actor is tipped to play the role of the mysteriously named uncle, which Colin Firth had previously been linked to, in Oldboy director Park Chan-Wook's English language debut, Variety's Showblitz blog said.

Alice In Wonderland starlet Mia Wasikowska portrays a teenage girl who, while mourning the death of her father must deal with the sudden appearance of an uncle, as people go missing in her hometown at the same time.

Nicole Kidman has been cast as her mother.

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller wrote the script for the fantasy fairytale under the pseudonym Ted Foulke, with Ridley and Tony Scott taking on producing parts.

Since Zack Snyder's Watchmen, Matthew, who played Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias), has had roles in A Single Man, Leap Year and Cemetery Junction.

The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
