Like many of you, I absolutely love Park Chan-wook’s 2003 flick Oldboy, but I have to say that when I heard the news that the film was set for an American remake I was obviously dubious, but, I’m not dismissing this one just yet.
So, with the film set for a release this October 11th, we have finally scored the official synopsis for Spike Lee’s remake.
The film stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley.
Synopsis: “Oldboy is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. 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.”
