Josh Brolin has taken the lead in director Spike Lee's Oldboy remake.

This stateside version of the 2003 Chan-wook Park cult favorite beings shooting for Mandate Pictures this March. Mark Protosevich has adapted the screenplay, which follows the plight of a man seeking revenge on those who've kept him locked in solitary confinement for the past fifteen years.

Josh Brolin is set to star in The Gangster Squad later this year. He will then jump directly into Oldboy when that film is finished shooting, and then he will follow that up with Jason Reitman's Labor Day.
