Nate Parker is "in talks" to join Samuel L. JacksonJosh BrolinSharlto Copley and Elizabeth Olsen in Spike Lee's Oldboy.

If all goes well, Parker will play a doctor who works with Olsen's character.

I can't recall that specific role in Park Chan-wook's 2003 film, nor in the graphic novel I read, so it's either a newly-created part, or a peripheral one (or both).

Lee is directing from a script penned by Mark Protosevich, who will also co-produce, along with Roy LeeDoug Davison and Nathan Kahane of Good Universe.

This would be a reunion for Parker and Lee; Nate co-starred in Spike's Red Hook Summer, which is currently in theaters.

He'll next be seen with Richard Gere in Nicholas Jarecki's Arbitrage, which opens September 14.
