Did you see Oldboy, the 2003 mystery drama thriller movie directed by South Koran Filmmaker Chan-Wook Park? Well, there’s a remake of the film under way. The remake is directed by Spike Lee based on a scrip t by Mark Protosevich. The new Oldboy movie is starring Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley, Elizabeth Olsen, and Samuel L. Jackson. Here’s a first official teaser poster:
“Oldboy” follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. 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. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.”

The original movie was a real masterpiece. Let’s hope Spike Lee’s take will be as interesting.
