Josh Brolin To Lead In Old Boy Remake; Spike Lee Directs

Josh Brolin has been cast in the upcoming remake of 2003’s Park Chan-wook’s “Old  Boy”Deadlinereports.

Josh Brolin

Brolin, who next appears on the big  screen in Men in Black  III, will play the part of Joe (Dae-su Oh in the original), a man who, on  the day his daughter is born, is captured and imprisoned in a hotel room for over two decades (15 years in the original) with no understanding as to why.  When he is suddenly released, he’s told that he has just four days to determine  the reason for his imprisonment and, if he cannot, his daughter will be  killed.

Originally a late ’90’s manga series by Garon Tsuchiya and  Nobuaki Minegishi, the American version will apparently, as in that series, go  by that two word title rather that the single world Oldboy that Chan-wook’s version used.
