Colin Firth has apparently passed on the Oldboy remake

I see that there are some people out there that are semi-interested in this OLDBOY remake. Some of you want to see what Spike Lee will do with this thing, others are fans of Josh Brolin, and others must satisfy their strange curiosities.

If you were even the slightest bit intrigued with Colin Firth playing the villain, then you may have to deal with some bad news. It seems that Firth has passed on the role. I thought it was an inspired choice, but if they have to remake this thing, then I'd actually like them to keep the bad guy a bit younger.

So who will be the one to kidnap Josh Brolin? I don't know. I'm still surprised by this remake. Actually, I'm even more surprised by the AMERICAN PSYCHO news. I'm just going to go punch myself in the face now.

smart move Mr. Firth.

I think most can agree with that.
Now Josh, your move.

I was actually backing this, since I thought Spike Lee would actually build upon the original....(and maybe use an Asian in the lead)...but Lee, for all his talk, doesn't seem to have any black characters in his cast...and he SURELY doesn't have an Asian's in his cast.

Lee is doing nothing different than what occurred with remade Asian properties, or what is occurring with properties like "Akira."

I agree with JimThePariah: Release the original in theaters.

Fucking scrap this trash and just re-release the original!!

Good, now let Josh realize what a stupid fucking project this is and jump ship. Let Spike muddle around in this filth - till he decides he needs more stupid hats for Knick games - and he decides to just do Inside Man 2. Just kill this thing already!
