When it was announced that Oldboy, Chan-wook Park’s 2003 cinematic classic, would be getting a Hollywood remake, there were a lot of skeptics. As the cast and crew took shape — Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson and Sharlto Copley would star for director Spike Lee — our doubts were slightly assuaged.

Then the first footage from Spike Lee’s new vision for Oldboy was released and all remaining fearswere instantly transformed into unbridled anticipation thanks to the trailer’s stylish visuals, live-wire performance and a clear dedication to the shocking source material.

ETonline scored an exclusive clip from Oldboy that showcases the film’s two most important performances: Brolin as Joe Doucett and Elizabeth Olsen as Marie. I think you’ll agree that their chemistry is spot on, as is the tone of dread infused throughout every single frame.

Oldboy opens in theaters on November 27.

Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen and director Spike Lee talk about their new vision of the revenge story.

Spike Lee‘s Oldboy remake was originally scheduled to be released on October 11th, 2013 now it will be released on October 25th, 2013. It’s not a drastic change, only two weeks. It moves the remake away from Sin City: A Dame to Kill, and closer to both Ender’s Game and Thor: The Dark World. The movie stars Josh Brolin as Joe Doucett, with Elizabeth OlsenSharlto Copley, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Synopsis:

OLDBOY follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. 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. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

Between 1996 and 1998, a Japanese manga series called Old Boy was published. Written by Garon Tsuchiya and illustrated by Nobuaki Minegishi, it remains a cult classic and has since been turned into a 2003 South Korean film of the same (contracted) name by Park Chan-wook, with an American remake by Spike Lee on its way next year.

Cast in the remake of Oldboy is Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene; more recently, Liberal Arts), and as she was in the Empire Podcast booth recently for an interview, the topic of the controversial remake naturally came up (the conversation starts at 51.47).

It’s going to be a different story, just because, one, it takes place in a non-descript city in America, and, two, it’s ten years later, so technology is different. It’s practicalities that have had to change. It’s not trying to redo the film – it’s coming at it from a different view. As well as focusing on the primary source of the Korean film, for our film there’s also the Japanese Manga, so we’re using the primary source of the illustrated novel, really.

Olsen plays Marie, a caseworker charged with investigating the past of the film’s hero. The original film itself played quite loosely with its source material, with the manga’s hero, Shinichi Gotō – a man who, after a decade in a private prison, is suddenly freed and sets out to find his captors – turned into Choi Min-sik’s somewhat different Oh Dae-su. Spike Lee, in turn, has cast Josh Brolin in the same role, which boasts the wonderful name of Joe Douchett.

I like to compare it to Let Me In and Let The Right One In. Those aren’t the exact same films, but they’re just a different take on the same story.

Let Me In, alas, was not as warmly received as the original it was based on, so hopefully Lee’s take on both the Old Boy books and the original film will fare better at the box office – and not offend too many diehard Chan-wook fans.

Lee’s Oldboy is shooting right now and is set for a 2013 release. Liberal Arts, Olsen’s current film, is out in the UK on October 5.
