Mia Wasikowska circles ‘Wettest,’ ‘Stoker’

'Alice' thesp could do both pics if sked allows

Mia Wasikowska’s 2011 could get curiously busy.

The “Alice in Wonderland” thesp is circling both John Hillcoat’s “The Wettest County in the World” and Fox Searchlight’s “Stoker.”

She may do both — but as of now, a scheduling conflict stands in the way. Negotiations are on hold while her reps and the studios try to work out a sked.

Both projects have received a fair share of buzz in recent months.

Prohibition pic “The Wettest County in the World,” based on Matt Bondurant’s tome and starring Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy, is a long-gestating passion project for helmer Hillcoat. After struggling to find financing last year, pic got an early 2011 start date after Megan Ellison’s Annapurna shingle jumped aboard. Nick Cave penned the adaptation, and Ellison, Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick are producing via Fisher and Wick’s Red Wagon Entertainment banner.

Stoker” was on the 2010 “Black List” of best unproduced screenplays. Carey Mulligan and Jodie Foster star and Ridley and Tony Scott produce via their Scott Free Prods. Pic, penned by Ted Foulke, revolves around a teen who, while mourning the death of her father, suddenly must deal with an uncle who mysteriously appears.

Wasikowska had a busy 2010 as Alice in “Alice in Wonderland,” which went on to make more than a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, and as the teenage daughter in “The Kids are All Right.”

She can be seen next in Focus’ “Jane Eyre,” which bows in March.

She is repped by WME, RGM Artist Group and attorney Robert Offer.
