FilmDistrict has released new publicity materials for OLDBOY, starring Josh Brolin (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, TRUE GRIT), Elizabeth Olsen (GODZILLA) and Sharlto Copley (DISTRICT 9, ELYSIUM). A unique reinterpretation of the 2003 Korean film, OLDBOY is written by Mark Protosevich (I AM LEGEND, THE CELL, THOR) and directed by Spike Lee (DO THE RIGHT THING, INSIDE MAN).
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.
OLDBOY will open November 27, 2013 in theaters.
FilmDistrict is a leading independent distribution, acquisition, co-production and feature film financing entity, designed to bring commercially viable films to targeted audiences across the United States. The Company focuses its efforts on wide release films from prominent filmmakers with notable casts.
Founded in September 2010 by CEO Peter Schlessel Schlessel and GK Film’s Graham King and Tim Headington, FilmDistrict plans to distribute an average of six to eight films per year. Operating independently from GK Films, FilmDistrict maintains a distribution relationship with Sony for the various home entertainment platforms as well as free television. The company also enjoys an agreement with Netflix to distribute its films in the pay television window. Filmmakers and producers have found that partnering with FilmDistrict allows them a high level of creative freedom while at the same time being provided with first-class marketing and distribution to maximize the potential of each film.
To date, FilmDistrict has seen success with such wide releases as INSIDIOUS starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne; SOUL SURFER starring AnnaSophia Robb, Academy Award winner Helen Hunt, and Dennis Quaid; DRIVE starring Ryan Gosling; RED DAWN starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, and Josh Peck; and the recent successful platform release of SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED.
