He Actually Did It. Spike Lee Remade ‘Oldboy’
When left to their own devices, Hollywood makes piles of festering puke such as The Lone Ranger and Rock of Ages, so the only way they can make movies that people actually want to see is if they remake movies that were great before. Oldboy is one of my favorite movies of all time, so this is not a good day for me. Text #999 to IDLYITW to help me during this difficult time.
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. Co-starring Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley, OLDBOY was directed by Spike Lee, from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison and Nathan Kahane.
