He was previously rumoured but now it’s official, Josh Brolin is confirmed to be starring in Spike Lee’s “Oldboy” remake at Mandate Pictures reports Deadline.
Mark Protosevich adapted the script from the 2003 Korean original which centered on a man kidnapped and held for 15 years in solitary confinement without explanation. He is eventually released and sets out on a path of revenge.
Shooting on the remake is now scheduled to kick off in March once Brolin wraps Ruben Fleischer’s “Gangster Squad” but before he gets to work on Jason Reitman’s “Labor Day” in June. Roy Lee and Doug Davison will produce.
