An interesting bit of information came out of the IAMA in which Lee explains that Brolin reached out to Chan-wook for a blessing. The result? You can interpret…
“Before we started the shoot, Josh Brolin went to Park Chan-wook and asked for his blessing,” explains Lee. “He told Josh ‘you and Spike make your own film, don’t remake ours.’ And that’s what we did.”
Hilarity ensued with the a following reader (Reverve) response: “To me that almost sounds like Brolin didn’t get his blessing.”
I’d say I agree with the commenter, although, I do know for a fact there are some extremely new elements to this version that will still shock and awe fans of the original.
In theaters november 27, “The pic 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.”
