Colin Firth Turns Down Spike Lee's OLDBOY

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Last month Twitch broke word that The King's Speech star Colin Firth had been offered the villain role in Spike Lee's upcoming remake of Oldboy. Firth would confirm the offer in subsequent interviews while playing coy about his intended response but had he taken the role on it would have seen him playing Josh Brolin's tormentor in the story of a man kidnapped and imprisoned for years without explanation.

Well, they're going to need to find another kidnapper. Twitch has learned that Firth has now officially passed on the project meaning they need to find someone else to play opposite Brolin in what is being planned as an early 2012 shoot.
