A poster for the U.S. remake of "Oldboy" featuring lead actor Josh Brolin was unveiled on Monday. Spike Lee has stepped into the director's chair to show audiences his take on Park Chan-wook's 2003 thriller.
As Lee suggested his remake will be "even darker" than Park's version, the poster shows Brolin, who assumes the starring role previously inhabited by Choi Min-sik, emerging from a traveling chest -- after spending 20 years locked in a private cell for reasons unknown to him.
Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel Jackson and Sharlto Copley also appear in the film, which will come out in the U.S. in October.
The release date for Korea has not yet been decided.
