The actor is in talks to play the villain in MGM and Sony's remake of the classic picture. Which villain, you ask? We don't know yet. Dick Jones, maybe? I'd buy that for a dollar!
Jose Padilha (Elite Squad: The Enemy Within) is directing, with Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) taking the title role. Gary Oldman and Sam Jackson have also been previously cast. While Abbie Cornish is still in talks to join the cast.
