According to the LA Times, Bruce Hornsby is set to score Spike Lee’s upcoming English-language remake of Old Boy. The film is based on the critically acclaimed Korean film directed by Chan-wook Park. Josh Brolin is set to star as a man who is kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years for unknown reasons and sets out to find out who held him hostage and why when he is inexplicably released. Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson and Sharlto Copley (District 9) are also attached to star in the Mandate Pictures production. Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell) has written the script and is co-producing the project, while Roy Lee and Doug Davison (The Strangers, The Lake Houseare producing. Hornsby has previously scored Lee’s last feature Red Hook Summer, which is currently playing in limited release. Most of Lee’s other films (including Inside Man, Malcolm X and The 25th Hour) featured scores by Terence Blanchard. Old Boy is set to shoot this fall in Louisiana and New York.
