"Elizabeth Olsen to Star in 'Oldboy' Remake"Elizabeth Olsen is allegedly in negotiations to star in the forthcoming adapted thriller movie ‘Oldboy’ remake by Spike Lee.

The 23-year-old ‘Red Lights’ star Elizabeth Olsen seems to be adding another movie project to her growing list, as she is reportedly in negotiations to star in the upcoming revenge thriller adaptation ‘Oldboy’ remake. If the deal gets locked, she would play the role of a female lead Marie in the movie. Previously, the role was offered to Oscar nominee Rooney Mara and Australian actress Mia Wasikowska, who declined the offers.

The younger sister of Olsen twins will join Josh Brolin, if she gets roped in to Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’ remake, in which he plays the male lead role. However, Lee is in quest of a potential actor to tackle the character of villain after the stars like Colin Firth, Clive Own and Christian Bale were considered to portray the bad guy, but they turned down the offers due to unknown various reasons.

The ‘Oldboy’ remake movie is based on a Korean revenge thriller by Park Chan-Wook, which follows a recently parolled middle age man, who spent 15 years in prison for unexplained reasons. Now, he sets himself to seek revenge on the people who were involved in the conspiration against him. The original version of the thriller was released in 2003 that has won a Grand Prize Jury Award at 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

However, the US version of ‘Oldboy’ would be produced by Doug Davidson and Roy Lee with Mark Protosevich of ‘Thor’ serving as the screenwriter. As for Elizabeth Olsen, she will next be seen in thriller flick ‘Therese Raquin’ in which she plays the role of Tom Felton’s wife. She has also been tapped to cast opposite Daniel Radcliffe in a true story drama movie ‘Kill Your Darlings’.
