Steven Spielberg and Will Smith are in early discussions to collaborate on a remake of Chan Wook-park's "Oldboy." DreamWorks is in the process of securing the remake rights, and the new pic will be distributed by Universal.

In the 2003 Korean original, a man gets kidnapped and held in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly, he's released and given money, a cell phone and clothes and is set on a path to discover who destroyed his life so he can take revenge.

Spielberg had been looking for an opportunity to make a film with Smith, who would play the kidnapped man if all the pieces fall into place. Spielberg is looking for a writer to begin the development process.

The film was originally set at U and then found its way to Mandate.

Spielberg is next expected to direct "Tintin."



I just can't imagine it

is will smith playing the same characters over and over again, or is that just me? i mean, i like him, but looking at the past couple of movies he did, he is basically the same dude

this is going to be absolutely terrible

i don't what i am more disappointed in the fact that speilberg is directing it or the fact that will smith is in it
#6
Oh my god no...the original is perfectly fine/traumatizing the way it is. Will Smith doesn't fit this role either...I think he's more of a "family movie" kind of guy.
A power bigger than the pain.

Hitch, the dad in the pursuit of happiness and Hancock, the 3 last films I can remember him being in.

Toatally different characters.

If this movie turns out anything like the original he'll have a quite different role on his hands.

Sounds like an awful idea.

The movie was perfect the way it was.

This will be terrible, and no doubt softened by Hollywood. Only way it will work is if all the dodgy content is left in.

I really don't see a point in the remake. Oldboy is one sick movie, and I think Will Smith can only go backwards from the original.=/

Will Smith will of course ruin the movie.

I'm sick of these douchebag american directors thinking they can make badass asian flicks better.

I hope it falls through.

The movie's only five years old for crying out loud.

Has anyone read the manga the movie is based on?

Actually, I haven't read it either, but that's the way I learned of the movie in the first place.
If something awesome comes out of that area, it PROBABLY invloves manga in some way.

And don't forget the whisky! Or Pantera. :3
