Color me disappointed, it looks like that will longer happen. Here’s hoping they can find a similarly inspired choice for the role.
Per Twitch, “Firth confirm[ed] the offer in subsequent interviews while playing coy about his intended response but had he taken the role on it would have seen him playing Josh Brolin’s tormentor in the story of a man kidnapped and imprisoned for years without explanation. Well, they’re going to need to find another kidnapper. Twitch has learned that Firth has now officially passed on the project meaning they need to find someone else to play opposite Brolin in what is being planned as an early 2012 shoot.”
It’s worth noting that when we spoke with producer Roy Lee last month he insisted that this new take would be “different and darker” than the original.
Whom do you Oldboy fans feel should play the villain?
