Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers, upcoming Django Unchained) has joined Spike Lee's remake of Oldboy. The English-language remake of Chan-wook Park's cult classic is set to star Josh Brolin in the lead role. Jackson will play a small, but critical part in the new film, Although it is not confirmed, rumor has it that he will be playing the role of the man who guards Brolin's character. If you recall from the original, his character starred in a memorable revenge scene. Old Boy starts shooting this fall in Louisiana and New York.
Do you think Jackson is a good addition to the cast? Do you feel that Oldboy should be remade at all?
