SPIKE LEE Wants ROONEY MARA For His OLDBOY Remake

Twitch is reporting that Rooney Mara (Nightmare on Elm Street, The Social Network) is the actress being sought after for the lead female role in Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy… although no official offer has been made yet.

Josh Brolin (True Grit, No Country For Old Men) has already been cast as the male lead and the rumor mill is reporting that Christian Bale (The Fighter, The Dark Knight) may be cast in the villain role.

Rooney Mara would be an excellent choice for this role and makes the idea of an Oldboy remake that much easier to swallow. Mara will next bee seen in David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo this December, which should make her a household name by the new year.


The big question about the Oldboy remake is if it will keep the stomach turning twist at the end of the film. Tough to say as of now because in the original film, the twist was made up by writer/director Chan-wook Park and was not in the original source material (a magma book of the same name) the film was adapted from.

A while back Mark Protosevich, screenwriter for the remake said his script will be based on both the magma and the original film.
