“Oldboy” is a Korean movie that has lingered in remakeland for quite a long time in Hollywood. Now the project is finally moving forward with Spike Lee taking the director's chair for the story of a man looking to get revenge on the person who imprisoned him in an apartment for fifteen years.

Josh Brolin is set to play the lead, and it looks as if “District 9” star Sharlto Copley has been offered the role of the antagonist. A role Colin Firth and Clive Owen passed on. Elizabeth Olsen is rumored to play the female lead.

If you have a chance to watch the Korean film, I recommend doing so. It's violent, but it's a great flick.

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
