Tense New Footage in Featurette for Spike Lee's 'Oldboy' Remake
"Who am I? And why did I imprison you for 20 years?" Following the recent eerie viral teaser for Oldboy, advertising the creepy hotel that Josh Brolin finds himself imprisoned in for 20 years, we have a featurette on Spike Lee's remake of the 2003 Park Chan-wook film of the same name. There's tons of new footage and also some great talking heads with Brolin, Lee, writer Mark Protosevich, and supporting stars Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley and more. This looks like it's going to be one hell of an intense remake, and might put all the naysayers to rest once it hits theaters later this fall. Watch!
Here's the latest featurette for Spike Lee's Oldboy remake, originally from Yahoo:
Spike Lee's Oldboy, written by Mark Protosevich (The Cell, I Am Legend) based on the original manga, tells the story of an advertising executive (Brolin) who is inexplicably kidnapped and held captive for 20 years. When he's unceremoniously released, he goes on an obsessive quest to find out who did this to him and why, enlisting the help of a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) before he eventually tracks down an enigmatic man (Sharlto Copley) who may have all the answers. Also co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Portnow and Lance Reddick. "Spike Lee is the right filmmaker to reimagine and put his touch onto arguably one of the most talked about thrillers in recent memory." FilmDistrict will open Oldboy on November 27th this fall.

I must say, being a huge fan of the original and not big on spike lee, this looks like it could be stellar.

Loved the Korean version. This one keeps looking better. Didn't realize Copley was in this, and that only helps sell me on this Spike Lee joint.

Well styled, looks pretty interesting. Knowing what comes at the end, I feel bad for the Old Boy.
