James Brolin To Star In Spike Lee's 'OldBoy' Redo For Mandate

Deadline Reports:
Josh Brolin was rumored to be on the short list to star in Spike Lee’s Oldboy, a remake of the cult 2003 Korean revenge thriller from Park Chan-wook. Now it’s official: Brolin will topline the Mandate Pictures redo, which begins production in March. Brolin, who just wrapped Men in Black 3 with Will Smith, next begins work on Warner Bros’ Gangster Squad. It looks like he’ll squeeze in Oldboy before shooting Jason Reitman’s Labor Day opposite Kate Winslet; that movie is set to begin production in June.

Next they'll remake The Chaser and Lady Vengeance... FFS! Is nothing sacred?

It is shocking that they are remaking the oldboy film cuz the orignal is easy one of the 10 tem movies of all time. Hollywood is jus gonna butcher it and make it cheesey as fuck. the only reason to remake a film is to make it better but this remake is never ever ever ever going to b even 1/8 as good so why bother?

That's all they care about.

everyone by now knows the twist at the end of the original, its going to be a bit anti-climactic to say the least, unless of course they write a totally new script for this one.

I guess I'd better see the original...I've never seen it and don't have a clue what you'll are talking about and now I'm curious.
