Park Chan-wook wants Colin Firth to play against type – in other words, not playing an out-and-out nice guy – in his remake of “Oldboy”, according to Twitch.
The Oscar Winning “King’s Speech” star would play Adrian, the villain of the piece. Josh Brolin is already set to play the film’s male protagonist.
Christian Bale had been mentioned at one stage for the role of Adrian but no doubt got his cape caught in his zipper and couldn’t make the screentest on time.
