OldBoy Plot Synopsis, US Distribution. Spike Lee‘s OldBoy official plot synopsis and US distribution through FilmDistrict answer the questions of how the original OldBoy will differ story-wise from this remake and who will distribute the film in the United States.

The official plot synopsis for OldBoy:

OLDBOY follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive.  When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

More on the difference between the original and this film:

there are changes deliberately meant to throw off those who are familiar with Park Chan-wook’s South Korean film, and the manga that inspired it. Lee also said that the film might even be more intense than Park’s original film,

The ending will be something that the audiences will all be…especially the fans of the original will be very happy with. In fact, some may consider it to be a bit darker.

How could they possibly make a darker ending than the original’s? That I have got to see.

OldBoy will also star Samuel L. Jackson, Nate Parker, Michael J. Burg, Steven Hauck, and Gralen Bryant Banks.
