‘Oldboy’ Remake Out of the Cards for Justin Lin?

While attending a screening of his hilarious new film, Finishing the Game, at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Director Justin Lin chatted a bit with Bloody-Disgusting about the delayed remake to Oldboy. He tells us that right now it doesn’t look like it will happen. He says he has a lot of other projects in the works and that the only way he’d make it is if everything “gelled” together right. He loves the original film and wouldn’t want to disrespect it. So the short answer is don’t expect a remake to Oldboy – at least from Justin Lin. In a recently paroled middle-aged man, who spent 15 years in prison without any explanation as to why he was jailed, seeks revenge on those who conspired against him.
