From King to King of the Night?\ \ Fresh off his Oscar winning turn as King George VI in "The King''s Speech," Colin Firth plans to give audiences the chills in a whole new way. The Daily Mail reports that Firth is signed to play a vampire in the film "Stoker." And he''ll have good cast mates: fellow Oscar winner Nicole Kidman, as well as Mia Wasikowska, perhaps the most sought after young actress in Hollywood right now, are set to co-star.\ \ In a script penned by "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller, Firth will play a vampire/uncle who visits mother and daughter Kidman and Wasikowska after the death of Kidman''s husband. The title of the film may be a nod to "Dracula" author Brahm Stoker, though formally, it comes from Wasikowska and Kidman''s surname in the film; Wasikowska''s character''s name will be India Stoker.\ \ The Los Angeles Times reported in February that Firth was in negotiations for the film, discussing various aspects with the movie''s South Korean director, Chan Wook-Park.
