Elizabeth Olsen - Elizabeth Olsen To Star In Old Boy

Elizabeth Olsen is expected to take the lead female role in 'Old Boy'.

The 22-year-old actress has been offered the part by director Spike Lee after Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska turned it down.

The film is a new version of Park Chan-wook's classic movie and if she signs up, Elizabeth will star alongside Josh Brolin, who will take on the lead male role.

The movie focuses on a man named Joe (Dae-su Oh in the original) who is captured and imprisoned in a hotel room for over two decades (15 years in the original) with no understanding as to why.

When he is suddenly released, he's told that he has just four days to determine the reason for his imprisonment with the help of Elizabeth's character Marie.

Although there is not a solid start date, shooting is planned to start ''soon''.

Elizabeth's next project is the Zola adaptation 'Therese Raquin', in which she's co-starring with Glenn Close, but she does't have much lined up for the rest of the year.

Elizabeth will next be seen in single-take horror 'Silent House'.
