Back in July Twitch first reported that Mandate wanted Josh Brolin for their remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 Korean masterpiece, Oldboy, which will be directed by Spike Lee.
It’s official as Brolin will topline the Mandate Pictures redo, which begins production in March, reports Deadline. Brolin, who just wrapped Men in Black 3 with Will Smith, next begins work on Warner Bros’ Gangster Squad.
The new Oldboy has script adapted by Mark Protosevich, who will co-produce. Roy Lee and Doug Davison will produce via Vertigo Entertainment.
“The story centers on a man who is kidnapped on his daughter’s birthday and held for 15 years in solitary confinement without explanation. He is eventually released and sets out on a path to take revenge on those who destroyed his life.”
