Martha Marcy May Marlene star Elizabeth Olsen has been offered the female lead role in director Spike Lee's Oldboy remake for Mandate Pictures. It isn't known yet if the young actress will accept the part or not.
Back in September, we reported that Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) was a top contender for the role, although she eventually passed on the project, as did Mia Wasikowska. Josh Brolin is set to star in the remake, although the production has had difficulty securing an actor to portray the villain. Actors such as Christian Bale, Colin Firth, and Clive Owen have all turned down the role.
