Olsen: I'll take Oldboy remake role

6 March 2012

Elizabeth Olsen has said she would gladly star in the Hollywood remake of Oldboy.

The Martha Marcy May Marlene star confirmed that she is in talks with director Spike Lee to appear in the English version of the South Korean hit, but admitted nothing is a done deal yet.

"The original is one of my favourite movies... and I'm a big fan of Spike Lee. Huge fan of Spike Lee, he's one of the best filmmakers around," she told The Playlist.

Elizabeth - who next stars in Josh Radnor's drama Liberal Arts and horror Silent House - is excited to see what Spike will do with the upcoming thriller.

"He's doing some tweaks to the original," she said.

"What's really cool is the Korean movie is what people in the world of films would have seen, like people who like foreign films would have seen it, but a general American audience, I doubt they know the twists and turns of the original, so it'll surprise them. And I think it's such a good movie, so that would be cool."

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.

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