This could actually be pretty amazing. It seems that Colin Firth has a shot at a really meaty role as the villain in Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake!
Per Twitch, “Twitch has learned that an offer is out to Firth for the part of Adrian, which means that – should he accept – he will be stepping into the villain role opposite Josh Brolin”
It’s worth noting that Twitch was the first to report that Brolin was in talks so this could be legit. There was also mention of Rooney Mara joining the pic a few months back though that has yet to be confirmed.
Oldboy fans – what do you think? Is Firth up to the task?
