FilmDistrict has released four new images from Spike Lee‘s remake/re-adaptation of Oldboy.  The story centers on a man (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped for mysterious reasons, and is released twenty years later with no explanation.  Once free, he goes on a mission to find his captor and take revenge.  I’m really excited by the visual style Lee is bringing to the picture.  It’s unlikely that he’ll be able to eclipse Park Chan-wook‘s 2003 film of the same name, but he might come out with something that’s on par.

Hit the jump to check out the images along with a video of Lee talking about reteaming with Samuel L. Jackson after twenty years and the importance of finding a unique look for the actor.  The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Michael Imperioli, Lance Reddick, and Sharlto CopleyOldboy opens November 27th.

Via FilmDistrict.

Here’s the official synopsis for Oldboy:

OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. 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.
