Roque Banos has signed on to score the upcoming English-language remake of Oldboy. The film is directed by Spike Lee (Malcolm X, Inside Man) and stars Josh Brolin, Samuel L. Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley. The movie follows an advertising executive who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement and sets out to find out who held him hostage and why when he is inexplicably released. Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, Thor) wrote the screenplay based on Chan-wook Park’s acclaimed Korean film from 2003 and Roy Lee & Doug Davison (The Strangers, The Lake House) and Nathan Kahane (Juno, 50/50) are producing the project. Banos is taking over scoring duties from composer Michael Nyman who was previously writing the music for the film. Nyman stepped in as a replacement composer for Bruce Hornsby. Banos’ best known film credits include this year’s Kahane-produced Evil Dead remake, The Machinist and Sexy Beast. Oldboy has been pushed back since our last update to a new release date on November 27, 2013.
