After years in development and a lot of people saying Hollywood shouldn’t have even thought of remaking Park Chan-Wook’s Oldboy, Spike Lee’s new take on the 2003 film is due for release in just a couple of months time. Now a new poster has arrived, showing a rather haggard looking Josh Brolin and his hammer!
Here’s the synopsis: ‘OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, OLDBOY was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.’
The film will hit cinemas in November.
