New images from Spike Lee’s Oldboy


Oldboy 1

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.

Spike Lee has mentioned how they spoke to Park Chan-wook (director of the original Oldboy) about making the film.

Before we started the shoot, Josh Brolin went to Park Chan-wook and asked for his blessing. He told Josh “you and Spike make your own film, don’t remake ours.” And that’s what we did.

Does that sound like they got his blessing?

Oldboy is out on November 27th, 2013.
