There will be few times when the names Park Chan-wook and Nicolas Winding Refn will appear together, and we'd wager that unless they ever co-direct a movie, few announcements will be as exciting as this. The soundtrack to Park's 2003 classic "Oldboy" is getting freshly minted on vinyl, and Refn is stepping in, adding his name as an executive producer on the release.

Oldboy

There will be few times when the names Park Chan-wook and Nicolas Winding Refn will appear together, and we'd wager that unless they ever co-direct a movie, few announcements will be as exciting as this. The soundtrack to Park's 2003 classic "Oldboy" is getting freshly minted on vinyl, and Refn is stepping in, adding his name as an executive producer on the release.

If you only know Spike Lee's remake from last year, now's the best time to track down the superior original. Not only is it a much better film, but it boasts the work of composer Cho Young-wok, who has been a longtime collaborator with Park, providing scores for "Joint Security Area," "Thirst" and "I'm A Cyborg, And That's OK," along with producing and working in the Music Department of "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance." This re-release provides a great opportunity revisit his unique work for "Oldboy" if you don't already know it. Also, for the keen eye, you'll notice all the soundtrack cues in the movie are named after some of Park and Cho's favorite movies, many of them classic noirs, like Nicholas Ray's "In A Lonely Place," the recently released "Out Of The Past" by Jacques Tourneur, Robert Aldrich's "Kiss Me Deadly" and more.

The "Oldboy" LP drops on November 18th on red vinyl (with a download card) via Milan Records in the U.S., and orange vinyl (also with a download card) via Invada in Europe. Check out the gorgeous artwork below, with the packaging of the record overseen by Refn himself. And you can listen to some full samples from the soundtrack below as well. [Factmag]
