Oldboy Casting Rumors: Clive Owen and Mia Wasikowska

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 18, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books |


Two new pieces of news are floating around regarding Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-Wook’s film Oldboy. While Josh Brolin had been confirmed to be playing the leading man (Dae-su), several other important parts were left un-cast. However now we have two names popping up: Clive Owen is being offered the role of the villain (Woo-jin), and Mia Wasikowska the role of the lead female (Mi-do). I think Clive Owen is a perfect choice, and I love him as an actor. He simply needs more roles to breathe in, and this could be a great part for him.

My usual reservations about remakes and adaptions of manga are still there, but they’re slowly eroding as we learn more about the film. Hopefully Spike Lee will do a solid job adapting Oldboy for an American audience without loosing the feel of the original.
