Josh Brolin in Talks for "Oldboy" RemakeSubmit Comment
Mandate Pictures just confirmed that Spike Lee (Inside Man, Do the Right Things) has been hired to direct the upcoming "Oldboy" remake from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend).

At one point Will Smith was attached to star in the new film, but Twitch has now learned that the studio's top choice is Smith's "Men in Black 3" co-star Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men). A deal has yet to be signed.

Plot: With no clue how he came to be imprisoned, drugged and tortured for 15 years - and no one to hold accountable for his suffering a desperate businessman seeks revenge on his captors, relying on assistance from a friendly waitress.

Will he somehow be racist in this?

Does this sound like a movie we have seen before?

I wonder if Spike Lee knows that Brolin isn't black...

Is Brolin gonna pull a RDJ treatment and go black for this role?
Cannon writes:

Color me unenthused. The original is overrated and Lee is a mediocre filmmaker. The only good thing about this is Brolin.

Seriously, Id just assume he make Jonah Hex 2 that movie was a crackup.

You're right Cannon, Spike Lee is a mediocre director and the original is over-rated. Much. And Josh Brolin I would hope should have better offers than the works of some race-baiting trash director. I mean, what idiot other than a black racist director would name his film He Got Game? Because making ebonics mainstream is really conducive to the advancement of black people. You go Spike Lee.

I was honestly expecting a WAyan brother or Tyler Perry to star in it.

Ah, Spike Lee, the oh so great champion of African American cinema. I suppose after this, he will grace our eyes and ears with a remake of Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood?

With Tyler Perry playing at least half the cast, and almost all of the female characters of course.
