Olsen, meanwhile, debuted in 2011's Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene. She will soon be back on the big screen in Spike Lee's Oldboy.

A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd. The tentpole film is expected to be presented in 3D.
