Josh Brolin says the remake of 'Oldboy' will be ''severely'' violent

The 'Men In Black 3' actor claims director Spike Lee won't hold back on the extreme violence in the movie - which was first adapted for the big screen from a Japanese Manga in 2003 by Korean director, Chan-wook Park - after confirming filming is ''good to go''.

Josh said: ''I think we're going to go for it, I think we're going to give 1000 per cent to this one.''

The 44-year-old star - best known for his roles in Westerns 'No Country For Old Men' and 'True Grit' - also revealed he sought The Blessing of Chan-Wook before accepting the role.

He added to Digital Spy: ''I emailed him and said: 'Look, I need your blessing otherwise I'm not going to do it.' And he said, 'Absolutely, go for it!' People in Korea are excited about it. So it's all good to go!''

Josh will star alongside Sharlto Copley and Elizabeth Olsen as Joe Douchett, who finds himself imprisoned for 15 years by a sadistic billionaire without any explanation.

Earlier this month, Josh spoke out against the backlash that followed the announcement of Spike's remake.

He said: ''I really respect his movie and we'll make a little different movie and this whole idea of a more Hollywood version of it? Whatever.

''We're just going to make a different version but have respect for the initial story and premise. I'm looking forward to it, man. I'm talking about it nervously right now because it makes me nervous.''
