Colin Firth is already planning his next project after winning his first Oscar for The King´s Speech.
According to the News of the World the actor is willing to try something completely different and has signed to play a vampire in in horror film Stoker, a movie based on Bram Stoker´s Dracula.
The film will also feature Mia Wasikowska (Alice In Wonderland) as India Stoker, with a script written by Wentworth Miller (Prison Break).
Firth is set to play India´s vampire uncle who presumably kills his victims in a very sadistic way.
Sources describe the role as "miles away from the comedies he's famous for. It's dark, modern and creepy. He's going out on a limb with this part."
The cast could also include Nicole Kidman as she is rumoured to be in talks for the part of India´s mum.
Sounds interesting and we know Firth has the talent to make it believable.
