'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller's screenplay in development. It's a good week for brainy hotties.

Carey Mulligan is reportedly attached to the project, and Jodie Foster is in talks. (Mulligan’s rep didn’t respond to EW’s request for confirmation.)

Little known fact — for those of you who haven’t cyberstalked the actor since his Prison Break days — this is a project Miller has been chatting about for a while. Back in 2008, the Princeton grad spoke about the project in an interview, saying, “It’s kind of love story with a Hitchcock twist. …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.”

Great news, I say! Not only because the story seems well thought out, but also because I love seeing bankable faces take a step behind the scenes — even if it means we get less of them. When an actor feels like they have something greater to contribute to the creative process (be it writing, directing, or otherwise), it shows substance, which is really one of the most attractive things of all. Agree?

    I agree!

    I do agree. It’s great to see actors pursue other things they really are passionate about — and it can be interesting for us fans too. (Robert Downey Jr.’s CD, anyone?) It’s nice that he’s really invested in something and it’s not just a vanity project.

  • Michael

    Agreed! I look forward to seeing this movie!

    I hope this project suceeds. I always thought Wentworth was very talented not to mention GORGEOUS. Plus I loved the fact that he was so intelligent and insightful. It is refreshing to see the celebrities who aren’t annoying branch out. It makes them more real.

      LOL @ him being gorgeous…maybe 5 years ago. But now even his face is packing on the pounds.

  • David

    Good thing they didn’t use a recent picture though, Wentworth’s gotten quite chubby.

  • Miss Talk

    “Seeing bankable faces behind the scenes” ? Good for him if he still works but he’s not a bankable actor anymore. It’s been a long time since the end of PB we have heard anything new about his career, the acting career that is . Maybe Ramin Sedoteh was right after all, unfortunately.

  • the real money’s behind the scenes anyway, so good for him.

    • mark

      that’s not true. actors are mainly the ones who get multi-million dollar deals for single films

  • Josie

    Agreed, although what you feel for Wentworth Miller, I feel for Charlie Hunnam. Can’t wait for his screenplay to be maid into a movie.

  • dianes45

    Heba,
    How could anyone know he’s a brilliant wrter when no ones has read so much as a syllable of the script? On the other hand it won’t be all that difficult to be as brilliant as he is as an actor since brilliancy is not one of his strong suits.
