Warner Has Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

Well, what the hell, right? Since the proposed Oldboy remake has tanked, why not just remake another film in Park Chan-wook’s Vengeance series?

Variety reports that Warner Bros. has acquired remake rights to the Park-directed Korean film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (review here) and set Brian Tucker (Broken City) to write the script.

In the film the women two different men love most are murdered, and the men set out on violent quests to punish those responsible. Trouble is, they themselves are the ones responsible, and only one of them will have vengeance.

Look for more on this one soon, if it ends up moving forward that is. Dig on the trailer for the original below.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Honky, please!

    That’s all that needs to be said about that.

    I never went crazy over this film like some other people so I’m not heartbroken over this. It’s still unnecessary and I doubt that I’ll like the Hollywood version more than the Korean original if I ever actually end up watching it.

  • Avid Fan

    Of the three vengeance flicks, I found Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance to be the least interesting of the three not to mention that is went on for way too long and could have used some serious editing.

    Oh for fuck’s sake!

    …and I have no sympathy for Mr. Warner.
