Rising star Nate Parker will join Spike Lee once more in his latest project, Oldboy. Previously together in Lee’s Red Hook Summer, the newest film will reel in big names like Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Brolin and Elizabeth Olson.

The reboot of the South Korean thriller is filming in New Orleans, and follows the story of Josh Brolin’s character, who takes revenges on his kidnappers. Sharlto Copley plays the enemy, and Elizabeth Olson plays Brolin’s love interest. Parker, previously in films like Red Tails and The Secret Life of Bees, is set to play Olson’s doctor colleague. The film will shoot this fall and hit theaters in 2013.
