"Colin Firth"Colin Firth has been offered to play as villain in the forthcoming classic remake adaptation movie ‘Oldboy’ directed by Spike Lee.

The ‘King’s Speech’ star Colin Firth has been allegedly offered to play a role in the upcoming adaptation movie ‘Oldboy’. He is believed to play the antagonist character Adrian in the movie that was earlier offered to ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ star Christian Bale. The character of Adrian will be the nemesis of the movie’s lead character of Josh Brolin. The male lead for the movie has been already confirmed and is looking for the female lead role.

As per the reports, Rooney Mara has been considered as the top choice to play the female lead role, but she turned down the offer for unrevealed reasons. The remake movie ‘Oldboy’ has been adapted from a South Korean revenge classic written by Park Chan-wook and the story focuses on a middle-aged man who has been released recently on parole, after spending 15 long years in prison for an unexplained reason.

He comes out of the prison following his release and set him to take revenge on the people, who have conspired against him and landing him in prison. The original version of the movie was released in the year 2003 and has also won the Grand Prize Jury Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004. The remake movie was being planned to be developed by DreamWorks in the year 2008.

During that time, the studio has considered Steven Spielberg and ‘Men in Black’ star Will Smith to direct and star respectively for the project. But, the deal was never been locked, until it was confirmed that the project would be developed at Mandate Pictures with Spike Lee being the director and Mark Protosevich of ‘Thor’ being the screenwriter of the project. So, we could soon expect Colin Firth being locked as the main villain in the upcoming remake movie ‘Oldboy’.
