*Spike Lee’s remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 suspense thriller “Oldboy” will get an Oct. 11, 2013 release date from distributer FilmDistrict, reports Deadline.
Spike’s version stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and Samuel L. Jackson. Brolin plays an advertising executive who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. When he is released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.
FilmDistrict picked up U.S. distribution rights to “Oldboy” last month in Toronto. It is set as the first title from Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane’s Good Universe. The film is also a 40 Acres & A Mule production.
The original South Korean film won the Grand Prize Jury Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.
