According to Twitch, who seem pretty well-informed about Spike Lee‘s Oldboy remake, Rooney Mara is topping the wishlist to join the cast. If she is cast, she’ll play Marie. A young woman who Josh Brolin falls in love with while on his quest for vengeance. However, she is eventually used as a pawn in the twisted game by which Brolin finds himself surrounded.
With The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s release looming large on the horizon, Mara is a hot property right now. There’s no word yet on whether or not schedules will work out or what other projects are certainly coming Mara’s way. The only thing that is certain is that we won’t likely see her battle Freddy Krueger again anytime soon.
