The ‘Oldboy’ Remake Lives, Spike Lee to Direct?

Our friends at Twitch have learned exclusively that Spike Lee (Inside Man, Do the Right Thing) is apparently in taks to direct the kong-gestured Oldboy, Universal Pictures’ remake of Park Chan-wook’s 2003 Korean masterpiece.

Word of a US remake of the Park Chan-Wook revenge classic first surfaced in 2008 with rumors that both Steven Spielberg (in some capacity) and Will Smith were eyeing the project.

The film is set up at Mandate with Doug Davison and Roy Lee producing and Mark Protosevich (Thor, I Am Legend) writing the script.

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.

If you haven’t seen Oldboy yet, you have no idea what you’re missing out on.
