In an interview with the website Digital Spy, actor Josh Brolin (True Grit, No Country for Old Men, Men in Black 3) spoke about his involvement with the American remake of the Korean film Oldboy. When questioned about the violence in the Korean film, Brolin revealed that he and Spike Lee, who is directing the remake, would not be toning down the violence.
The live-action Korean film is loosely based on the Japanese manga of the same name written by Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya. Brolin had previously said that he contacted the Korean film's director, Chan-wook Park, for his blessing.
