It seems we may have a female lead for Spike Lee’s planned re-make of the all time classic OLDBOY!
With Josh Brolin already signed up for the lead role and with reports that Christopher Bale is in line to play the bad guy role, the only speculation left was that of the female character and Twitchfilm are reporting that Rooney Mara who can be seen in David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” is in talks to play the female character, named Marie.
Now if you a movie fan then you know where this is going, because OLDBOY contains one of the greatest twists of all time, but I have to keep my mouth shut in case there are some reading this who have never seen the original which begs a different question- why not?
OLDBOY is a story of a man (Brolin) who has only five days and limited resources to discover why he was imprisoned in a nondescript room for 15 years without any explanation. In his investigation he falls in love with a woman that leads to a devasting climax.
