The last we heard about the proposed remake of the cult classic Oldboy, it was put out to pasture and not happening. Now a few months later news has come that it wasn’t as dead as we originally had thought.
According to Twitch, Spike Lee is currently in talks to direct the long-rumored Hollywood remake of Park Chan-Wook’s Oldboy.
A US remake of the revenge classic first surfaced in 2008 with word that both Steven Spielberg (in some capacity) and Will Smith were eyeing the project, and now it appears to finally be moving ahead.
The film is set up at Mandate Pictures with Doug Davison and Roy Lee producing and Mark Protosevich (Thor, I Am Legend) writing the script.
Look for more on this one soon.
An average man is kidnapped and imprisoned in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. He then is released, equipped with money, a cellphone and expensive clothes. As he strives to explain his imprisonment and get his revenge, Oh Dae-Su soon finds out that his kidnapper has a greater plan for him and is set onto a path of pain and suffering in an attempt to uncover the motive of his mysterious tormentor.
