Elizabeth Olsen offered Oldboy role

29 February 2012

Elizabeth Olsen has apparently been offered the lead female role in Spike Lee's revenge thriller Oldboy.

Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska have both turned down the part in the Hollywood adaptation of the Korean thriller, according to twitchfilm.com, who report the role has now been offered to rising star Elizabeth.

Josh Brolin is set to star as a man who spends 15 years in solitary confinement without any explanation after being kidnapped on his daughter's birthday, and upon his release sets out to take revenge on the people who destroyed his life.

Christian Bale, Colin Firth and Clive Owen have all been linked to the role of villain Adrian, but reportedly turned it down for various reasons.

Chan-wook Park's original 2003 film won the Grand Prize Jury Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.

Elizabeth, younger sister of actress-turned-fashion designers the Olsen Twins, was the toast of the Sundance Film Festival 2011 with her strong performances in Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Silent House.

She is about to begin filming the Zola adaptation Therese Raquin, co-starring Glenn Close.
