Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of Oldboy recently cast up, Josh Brolin as the male lead and there has been some chatter that Christian Bale could play the main villain in the film, one role I would love to see him play.
However, Twitch has received word that Rooney Mara (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) has been targeted to play the female lead. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet but Twitch appear to be extremely confident in their source.
Mara would be an excellent choice if this did actually go through and even though I’m disappointed about Spike Lee directing, if all the rumours are true about the cast, this could be a great film. If we look at this as a standalone film and not a remake.
