- JOSH BROLIN IS A REAL OLD BOY
He's been rumored for the film for awhile, and now Oscar nominee Josh Brolin is reportedly set to play the title role in the American remake of Oldboy.
Deadline says the film, to be directed by Spike Lee for Mandate, begins shooting in March after Brolin wraps Gangster Squad.
Christian Bale was recently rumored as being up for the role of the mysterious villain who secretly imprisons Brolin's character for 15 years. After he is freed, the title character goes on a bloody quest for revenge.
