Roque Baños, the man who brought us the chilling, bombastic score to Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, has been announced as the official composer of the upcoming Oldboy remake, which is being helmed by Spike Lee. The original was directed by Chan-wook Park and is widely acclaimed as one of the best revenge thrillers in recent years. Baños wrote and scored Oldboy in under a month’s time, and conducted it with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra in Slovakia.
Baños states, “Adrian’s (Sharlto Copley) theme is dark, but also sad because of his past. Joe’s (Josh Brolin) theme has a touch of epic given his heroic rise. It’s not an entirely epic theme because it has touches of emotion and revenge. Hitting the emotion was key as Oldboy follows the transition of a man who has been confined for 20 years who then becomes more serious. He finds a lot in his life.”
Oldboy hits theaters on November 27th.
