Spike Lee directs Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen and Sharlto Copley in Good Universe’s remake of the celebrated Korean revenge saga.
Roy Lee and Doug Davison are producing through Vertigo Entertainment alongside Nathan Kahane on behalf of Good Universe. FilmDistrict CEO Peter Schlessel, Good Universe’s Joe Drake and John Middleton will serve as executive producers. The film is also a 40 Acres & A Mule production.
Mark Protosevich wrote the adapted screenplay about an advertising executive who embarks on a mission to discover why he was inexplicably abducted and held hostage for 20 years.
Audrey Chon and Matt Leonetti are overseeing the production for Good Universe.
“Spike Lee is the right filmmaker to reimagine and put his touch onto arguably one of the most talked about thrillers in recent memory,” Schlessel (pictured) said. “The cast that he and producers Nathan, Joe, Roy and Doug have put together is sure to elevate the material and engage audiences. FilmDistrict is proud to be releasing one of the first films from Good Universe here in the US.”
“Nothing thrills us more than to partner with our longtime friend Peter and the exceptional team at FilmDistrict,” Drake and Kahane said.
