Another round of offers have gone out for roles in Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake as Twitch reports that Mia Wasikowska (Stoker, Alice in Wonderland) has been offered the role of Marie, the female lead of the gritty thriller. The role was previously offered to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara. They also report that that the villain role has now been offered to Clive Owen (Shoot ‘Em Up, Intruders) after Colin Firth passed.
If they accept they will be playing opposite Josh Brolin in the lead as a man imprisoned against his will and with no explanation for years before he is released and sets out to find and take revenge on his captor.
Many names have been tossed around, so hopefully things will be finalized setting up a shoot early in 2012. Pictured: Mia Wasikowska
