First look at Sharlto Copley in Oldboy

Spike Lee's remake/reboot/revision of Chan-wook Park's Oldboy has finally revealed its key villain. Prior to this latest image, we had only seen Samuel L. Jackson's (Django Unchained) mohican clad villain but now we get our first look at Sharlto Copley's (Elysium) Adrian Price.

Oldboy follows an advertising executive who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years. When released, he embarks on a vengeful mission to find his captors and discover the reason for his ordeal. The film stars Josh Brolin (Men in Black 3) leading the cast alongside Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Richard Portnow (Law Abiding Citizen), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Lance Reddick (The Wire) and opens in North America on October 25th ahead of a UK release on December 6th.

Before you get mad at me, yes, I realise now that he was also in District 9, but I honestly didn’t remember him in it until I looked it up. My bad, sure, but I’m here to tell you about Richard Stark, not Peter Jackson (unless he directs a film based on a Duane Swierczynski book…
