Elizabeth Olsen on the set of 'Oldboy'

With her blonde hair, cherubic looks, and typically sunny disposition it was hard to believe that Elizabeth Olsen would be cast in such a dark film like the Oldboy remake. Well, lo and behold, the 23 year-old actress appears to be adjusting just fine as she slips into her role on set in New Orleans.

Sporting a barbed wire tattoo on her forearm and some darker tresses, Olsen will play Marie, a social worker who helps Josh Brolin's character figure out why he had been imprisoned for fifteen years without any explanation. The film, directed by Spike Lee, is based off both the Japanese manga and 2003 Korean film adaptation of the same name.
