Twitch Film is reporting that Elizabeth Olsen (Silent House, Martha Marcy May Marlene) has been offered the lead role of “Maria” in Spike Lee’s Oldboy, his remake of the Korean thriller that will star Josh Brolin in the lead role. For the female lead both Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska had been offered and rejected the part.

In Park Chan-wook’s 2003 Korean original, “a man gets kidnapped and held in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly, he’s released and given money, a cell phone and clothes and is set on a path to discover who destroyed his life so he can take revenge.

The remake has been riddled with casting issues over at Warners. It’ll be interesting to see if this or Akira gets off the ground first. Elizabeth Olsen
