‘Oldboy’ Clip Shows Josh Brolin’s Dark Side, Plus Photos Offer First Look at Sharlto Copley
Josh Brolin is back with a vengeance, as is apparent in a newly released clip from ‘Oldboy,’ the American remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 South Korean mystery-thriller. While we’ve already seen bits of him in action, in addition to his co-star Elizabeth Olsen (‘The Avengers 2‘), FilmDistrict offers up even more footage, plus new photos featuring ‘Elysium’ star Sharlto Copley, and more!
While Brolin and Olsen share a few dramatic moments that border on hate sex (see the clip), Sharlto Copely, who played a battle-scarred assassin in Neil Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’ opposite Matt Damon, takes another scarred character in Adrian Pryce for ‘Oldboy.’ The new images further reveal another look at Samuel L. Jackson with his crazy-awesome blond mohawk — though something tells us he’s not one of the good guys.
Mark Protosevich wrote the screenplay for the ‘Oldboy’ remake, which centers on Brolin’s ad executive Joe Doucett. After being kidnapped and imprisoned for 20 years in solitary confinement, Doucett is miraculously released, kickstarting his obsessive mission to find out the responsible party. In addition to the previously mentioned cast, ‘Oldboy’ also features Samuel L. Jackson in a crazy-awesome blond mohawk, and is set to hit theaters November 27.
