It's a pretty good time to be a Spike Lee fan. Not only did he drop his latest feature "Red Hook Summer" this year, he's got the critically acclaimed and pretty awesome looking "Bad 25" ready to go, opening in limited release today and hitting TVs across the nation on Thanksgiving. And the busy director isn't stopping, with work getting underway on "Oldboy" and now a release date has been stamped out.

It's a pretty good time to be a Spike Lee fan. Not only did he drop his latest feature "Red Hook Summer" this year, he's got the critically acclaimed and pretty awesome looking "Bad 25" ready to go, opening in limited release today and hitting TVs across the nation on Thanksgiving. And the busy director isn't stopping, with work getting underway on "Oldboy" and now a release date has been stamped out.

FilmDistrict will bring the movie to theaters in time for next Halloween, on October 11, 2013. It's currently the only movie slotted on that date, and certainly will remain one of the big highlights of that month. But the pressure is on Lee to match the genius and squirmy thrills of the Park Chan-Wook original, about a man who is freed from fifteen years of captivity and has five days to figure out how he was captured, who did it and why. The answers are disturbing. However the word around the remake has always been that it will draw upon the manga more closely, feature new characters yet also retain the classic hammer fight sequence and octopus eating.

Starring Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, James Ransone and more, we're really curious to see what flavor Lee will bring to the picture. Less than one year until we find out.... [BoxOfficeMojo]
