Mia Wasikowska offered lead in OLDBOY remake

Mia Wasikowska is continuing her relationship with director Park Chan-Wook. Well, kinda. Twitch is reporting that the Jane Eyre actress may be moving from Oldboy director Park Chan-Wook's English language debut Stoker to Spike Lee's remake of the genre classic. Wasikowska has reportedly been offered the lead role of Marie, which had initially been offered to Rooney Mara.

If cast, she will star opposite Josh Brolin who plays “a man imprisoned against his will and with no explanation for years before he is released and sets out to find and take revenge on his captor.” Earlier tonight we reported that Clive Owen has been offered the role of the villain.

I never really noticed until now that Wasikowska looks a lot like Mara in terms of body, size and style, so her casting makes sense from that perspective. The casting news on this film continues to get better and better. I am still not sold on Brolin playing the lead, but only time will tell.

What are your thoughts on the cast of this remake so far?
