Ask not why you were imprisoned. Ask why you were set free.
Christian Bale, Colin Firth and Clive Owen were offered the role of Adrian, but they declined.

Will Smith and Daniel Craig were offered the lead role, but turned it down.

Joe (Josh Brolin) looks at a squid swimming in a tank at a restaurant and walks away, a nod to the infamous squid scene from the original "Oldboy" film.

The female lead was offered to Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska but both declined.

Lily Collins auditioned for the role of Marie.

Josh Brolin personally created the title artwork.

The action sequences in the movie are very raw and gory, including a hammer fight.
