Variety reported on Tuesday that actor James Ransone (Sinister, Inside Man, The Next Three Days) will replace Nate Parker (Red Tails, Red Hook Summer, The Secret Life of Bees) for Spike Lee’s remake of Chan-wook Park‘s Oldboy. Ransone had previously worked with Lee on Inside Man and Red Hook Summer.
Parker had been slated to play a small role of a doctor who works with Elizabeth Olsen‘s character.
Variety added that Parker left the project due to scheduling conflicts with his commitment for the Non-Stop film where he is starring beside Liam Neeson.
Actors Josh Brolin (Milk, Men in Black 3), Sharlto Copley (District 9, The A-Team), and Olsen are attached to this planned remake of Chan-wook Park’s live-action film, which is itself an adaptation of Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi’s manga.
Samuel L. Jackson is also slated to appear in the film as man tortured by the main character, »
