Screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, Chloe) has been tapped to come aboard and do a polish on the fast-tracked thriller STOKER for Fox Searchlight. The film, originally written by actor Wentworth Miller (under the pseudonym Ted Foulke), centers on a teenage girl, who following her father’s death must deal with a mysterious uncle who returns to spend time with the family. The project, which we recently detailed the revolving door of casting news on, continues to press forward, with an eye for a 2011 start date. With Wilson’s polish, look for her to clean up, what was considered the “weak” point of the script, by doing some nice character fine tuning.
Wilson is repped by CAA and Art/Work Entertainment.
