Wentworth Miller has been leading a double life — one of Hollywood’s hottest leading men by day, secret screenwriter “Ted Foulke” by night. His two movie scripts, “Stoker” and its prequel “Uncle Charlie,” are already garnering some big-name attention, reports Deadline.
Movieline caught up with Miller at Comic-Con to talk about the scripts and his use of a Ted Foulke pseudonym.
“That wasn’t about protecting my identity — I just wanted the scripts to sink or swim on their own,” says Miller.
While Jodie Foster and Carey Mulligan are already attached to “Stoker,” the story of a teenage girl whose mysterious uncle shows up upon her father’s death, so far mum’s the word on the male lead. “I have to say that when I hear some of these names, it’s pretty
exciting. There’s incredibly talented people taking an active interest,
so I’m very hopeful that it’s going to come together in a powerful way,” adds Miller.
Miller also says that writing the scripts was “probably the most creatively satisfying experience I’ve had, hands down, on a personal level.” For more details on Miller’s movies’ Alfred Hitchcock connection and his role in the new “Resident Evil” movie, read the whole interview at Movieline.
