Sharlto Copley in an ‘Open Grave’ & Signs for ‘Oldboy’

The District 9 and A-Team star Sharlto Copley has become a busy man lately with an upcoming horror film and his recent signing to play the villainous role in Oldboy now on his plate. According to Deadline Copley will be on his way to Hungary to begin shooting the Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego directed horror film Open Grave. In Open Grave, Copley’s character wakes up in a grave full of rotting bodies with no idea how he got there. He soon begins to have flashbacks to himself murdering people which makes him start to believe that he’s the killer. I’d say that if you ever wake up in a pit filled with dead bodies and immediately begin to have horrible memories of you murdering people come rushing back to you, then yes, you probably are the killer. It sounds great and is no doubt a horrifying premise that I am very much excited to see on screen.

“Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.”

Copley has also been confirmed to be playing the villain Adrian Pryce in Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of Oldboy. His character is a mysterious billionaire who is trying to destroy the life of Joe Douchett who will be played by Josh Brolin. The reboot will begin shooting in late September. The Oldboy remake is really starting to take shape with some fantastic actors attached with Elizabeth Olsen, Josh Brolin, and now Shartlo Copley. Although not many people are a huge fan of this upcoming remake of Chan-wook Park’s classic, it is nice to see that after a long list of actors that turned down these roles they have finally landed three solid actors who are willing to bring the classic film back to life.
