Oldboy (2012): Josh Brolin cast in Spike Lee’s Remake

Josh Brolin has been cast as the lead in Spike Lee‘s Oldboy (2012) remake. The original (Oldeuboi) was directed by Chan-wook Park in 2003 and starred Min-sik Choi, Ji-tae Yu, and Hye-jeong Kang. Oldboy‘s plot synopsis: “The story centers on a man who is kidnapped on his daughter’s birthday and held for 15 years in solitary confinement without explanation. He is eventually released and sets out on a path to take revenge on those who destroyed his life.”

I was against this being remade the moment I heard it was happening. As soon as I finished watching Oldboy for the first time in 2003, I knew it was a classic from the excellent camera work, the script, and the acting. In addition, th film’s ending was a hammer to the senses. I was not the only person that felt that way. Oldboy is probably one of the best revenge films »
