FilmDistrict has debuted this new collection of promo images and a clip for Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy.’ Arriving in cinemas on November 27th in the US and December 6th in the UK, the upcoming remake of Park Chan-wook’s cult classic also stars the likes of Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, James Ransone, Lance Reddick, and Michael Imperioli. The original ‘Oldboy,’ released in 2003, won the much coveted Grand Prize Jury Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. The film is based on Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi’s 90′s manga series.
Spike Lee’s ‘Oldboy’ follows Josh Brolin’s character, Joe (Dae-su Oh in the original), a man who is kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughters birthday. For twenty years he is held captive, and upon his release must begin his journey to find the reason for his imprisonment. He soon finds out that his kidnapper has plans for him more tortuous than his solitary confinement. Sharlto Copley plays a mysterious billionaire out to destroy Joe’s life, while Elizabeth Olsen plays Marie, a caseworker who helps Joe investigate the past. Samuel L. Jackson plays the head of the motel where Brolin’s character has been held hostage.
Deadline are reporting that Fede Alvarez, the Uruguayan helmer who went from highly acclaimed short ‘Panic Attack’ to the ‘Evil Dead’ remake, is in talks to direct ‘Dante’s Inferno.’ Universal Pictures is setting him to helm the live action adaptation of the Electronic Arts video game, which is loosely inspired by the first third of Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic poem, “The Divine Comedy.” The protagonist, Dante Aligheri, is a knight who with the help of the poet Virgil ventures into the nine rings of hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice. In the process, he becomes an unwitting pawn in an ancient war between heaven and hell. Rights to the video game were won by Universal several years ago in a bidding battle. The game was released in 2010 for Xbox and PlayStation. Jay Basu is the most recent writer of the script, with Bruce McKenna writing the earlier draft.
