is one of those actors who is parachuted into everything, and makes it better. He's also got a resume packed with mega-franchises (The Avengers, Star Wars), box-office hits and Tarantino classics (Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds). Yes, he's as close as you get to a sure bet nowadays.
And now 's courted his services for his Oldboy remake. And has released the first still of him in the project, which you can see below:
So, we still know nothing about the character, apart from his name is Chaney. Not Cheney, so we won't be featuring a surprise appearance from a relative of the former Vice-President. But I highly suspect he's upto something nefarious. Just look at the mohawk. Can you trust anyone who wears a red shirt? And just WHAT is inside that basket?
Maybe he's connected to 's character and holds the keys to why has faced 20 years in imprisonment. Only time will tell, when Oldboy is released on November 27th 2013.
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.
