Liu Ye (All Quiet in Peking) will be playing pilot Wu Zheng, the titular Old Boy 老男孩 who finally finds love at the age of 40. Also cast is Ariel Lin (The Mysteries Family) who will be playing the feisty heroine, a  high school teacher who returns from overseas.

The initial plot also mentions a reunion between Wu Zheng and his 17 year old child, so if that plot line stays, we’ll also be seeing some awkward family bonding between an overgrown manchild and his rebellious son.

Oldboy is directed by Liu Junjie (First Love, I Am Du Lala) and written by Gao Rongrong (Husband and Wife) and will begin filming at the end of May.
