There has been much talk about the pending OLDBOY project, through which Spike Lee is going to remake the South Korean film which has gained a cult following in the United States, and now some of the talk can turn to more specific speculation as Josh Brolin has been cast to star in the film.

This project is being written by Mark Protosevich, who recently penned THOR and I AM LEGEND before that. According to SpinOff, a previous attempt at remaking OLDBOY would have been helmed by Steven Speilberg and starring Will Smith.

Production on OLDBOY is set to begin in March of 2012.
