Director Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy hits theaters on November 27th. Star Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men) undergoes a remarkable physical transformation in the film in addition to painting a compelling portrait of a man searching for answers… and vengeance. I recently sat down with Brolin to talk about how this take on the material differs from the original movie and how US audiences may be in for a shock this coming Thanksgiving weekend.
The film, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel Jackson, and James Ransone “is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of Joe Doucette (Josh Brolin), a man who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement, for no apparent reason. When he is suddenly released without explanation, he begins an obsessive mission to find out who imprisoned him, only to discover that the real mystery is why he was set free.”
