Colin Firth Lands Stoker Role in First Film Since Oscar Glory

British actor Colin Firth is set to sink his teeth into a vampire role in his first film since winning an Oscar last month (Feb11).

The star has signed on to play a bloodsucker in the movie Stoker, alongside Nicole Kidman and Alice in Wonderland actress Mia Wasikowska, according to Britain’s The Daily Mail.
The new role is remarkably different from the actor’s most recent performance in The King’s Speech, in which he played stuttering royal King George VI.
Screenwriter Wentworth Miller reveals the title of the movie is a nod to Bram Stoker’s film Dracula.
He says, “It’s got a lot of elements of the Dracula mythology in its story… It’s not a vampire story. It’s not about vampires at least with the teeth and the desire to suck your blood but it is a thriller and it is about an individual who preys on the innocent.”
