With filming now underway on Spike Lee's remake/adaptation of "Oldboy," the New Orleans set has been largely leak-free, aside from a few set photos that showed off a buzz-cut, ripped Josh Brolin in the lead role, so we were more than a little intrigued when Ziggy Sobotka James Ransone opened up to Entertainment Weekly about the film in a new interview.
Ransone, who only recently joined the cast of "Oldboy," replacing Nate Parker, spoke candidly about the secretive project and even directly addressed some of the concerns from the more diehard fans of the Chan-wook Park original. "I have seen the original. It was after I got the part, to see what it was," Ransone said. "There was so much build-up about it. People built it up to be a masterpiece. I didn't think it was sacrilege we're remaking it."
