On Saturday, Moviefone sat down for a one-on-one interview with reigning Best Actor winner Colin Firth. Firth is promoting his new British spy thriller, 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,' but we asked him about the recent rumors that he's been approached to co-star in Spike Lee's remake of the South Korean film, 'Oldboy.' According to reports, Firth would play the villain, Adrian, opposite Josh Brolin. Firth was fairly mum on the subject, but did confirm that he's been approached and cryptically relayed that discussions are still ongoing.
There is a report that you've been approached to star in Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' remake. Is this true?
They are making a film. And, yeah, I have been approached about it.
Is it confirmed?
So you're talking?
I've just... heard about it. [Smiles] You know.
Check back before the Dec. 9 release of 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' for Moviefone's full discussion with Colin Firth.
