Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' Gets Its First Poster
The American remake of Oldboy which is directed by Spike Lee, has just been given its first poster. The poster isn't anything special but it's apparently from a scene of the movie and the red band trailer which will be released Wednesday. Josh Brolin himself wrote the logo of the poster. It's also NOT a Spike Lee JOINT but a Spike Lee FILM.
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.
The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley and the screenplay was written by Mark Protosevich (Thor, I Am Legend). The film is being produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.
I am a huge fan of the original Korean version by master filmmaker Park Chan-wook so this American version has very big shoes to fill. Once the Red-Band trailer is released, you'll bet that we will show it to all of you. Are you excited for this rendition of Oldboy? Let us know in the comments.
