Get out those calendars, kids, because Film District just announced the release date for Spike Lee’s take on Oldboy starring Josh Brolin. Look for the flick in theatres on October 11, 2013. Will you be there or are you just gonna stick with the Korean classic?
James Ransone, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, and Samuel Jackson all star in the remake of Park Chan-wook’s masterpiece. FilmDistrict acquired U.S. distribution rights to the flick during the Toronto International Film Festival.
Brolin plays an ad exec 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 (Olsen) and ultimately to an odd man (Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.
