Before it was Will Smith and Steven Spielberg although that rumor died. Now Spike Lee...

 But an interesting rumor emerged overnight, one that might see Lee return to the big screen, for a project that many films fans have been dreading for some time; the long-gestating remake of Park Chan-Wook‘s modern Korean classic “Oldboy.

Ever since that movie, a brutal revenge story about a man imprisoned for decades by a mysterious stranger, was released back in 2003, talk of an Americanization has circulated, and 2008 saw Will Smith and Steven Spielberg, an actor/director pair as ill-suited to the project as possible, attach themselves to the film. They departed not long after when Mandate and DreamWorks fell out, but late last year, it was reported that writer Mark Protosevich (”I Am Legend”) had turned in a draft that had executives jumping for joy, and that Spielberg had been approached again, along withMatthew Vaughn and Danny Boyle.

This makes me very sad. A remake is one thing, but having Spike Lee directing makes it even more shitty. I don't want this film remade. It's awesome enough.

What reminds me, some years ago there was a rumor about the Coen Brothers to make a film adaptation of Michael Chabon's Yiddish Policemen's Union. What ever happened to that?
