The remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy directed by Spike Lee and starring Josh Brolin, Sharlto Copley, Elizabeth Olsen and Samuel L. Jackson, is finally coming together and less than a month after the announcement that FilmDistrict would be distributing the project, they’ve already picked a release date.

That date is in less than a year on October 11, 2013, which would put it up against Paul Greengrass’ Somali pirate movie Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks, and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith 3D.

Oldboy follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive. 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. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.
