"Oldboy" Remake to Have Darker Ending

Posted: November 28th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Oldboy" Remake to Have Darker EndingSubmit Comment
We already know that Spike Lee will be directing a remake of "Oldboy" that has Josh Brolin on board to play the lead character and Colin Firth is attached to play the villain. And now, producer Roy Lee has provided a bit more information, hinting at some of the changes fans can expect.

"We are planning to shoot 'Old Boy' in March and [we] should start pre-production in late January," he said. "This is a brand new script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend). It is very similar to the [original] film, but Protosevich has added new elements that will throw off the audience who have seen the original movie, because there are new characters and new situations that present themselves in a way that change the story but eventually go in the same direction. The ending will be something audiences - especially fans of the original movie- will be very happy with. Some may consider it a bit darker."

Lee added: "There's going to be a different interpretation of the hallway scene that is hopefully going to be Spike's signature moment in the movie that he wants to show in a way that has never been seen in an action movie."

It's a Spike Lee movie. A darker ending just means the black guy kills whitey.

How can we be throwned off if it's going in the same direction? And the word "darker," along with "gritty," as completely lost its meaning when it's coming from Hollywood.

They should get Jeremy Renner to lead this film. He has Old Boy written all over his young Daniel Craig face.

I just hope Spike Lee's next project is that Crips-blood film Nick Nolte, no, Shannon Price, damn it, I mean *Gary Busey* was incoherently rattling on about some days ago after they fished his face from the back of a trash truck.

Someone took a scoop out of it, didn't they? One more and Busey could be a breakfast cereal.

"Is Brolin gonna black up for this?"

You mean a rob a liquor store?

No, no I don't think even Brolin would go that far for a role.

I f*cking doubt it.

Minkowski wtf. This place sucks d*ck without you. I don't even bother anymore.

Rangers completely post op now so even he's turned into a complete idiot.

Too bad there isn't sh*t for news on this pos website. Might have been able to start some sort of discussion over something slightly interesting.

Oldboy was a damn good movie. You better get it right, Spike or go make your own movie with Black people in it and stop stealing someone else's idea.

Why does Hollywood always have to ruin an already perfect movie? Except for "Let Me In": the American version was way better than the Swedish version. I'm from Sweden myself and I don't buy the concept 'Swedish Vampires'. At all.

Spike Lee: Do NOT f*ck this one up!!
Cannon writes:

Jesus. How in the hell can this be any darker than the original?

What, is he gonna find out that not only did he f*ck his daughter, but that his daughter is actually his (transsexual) son ...who has AIDS ...and is a Nazi sympathizer? Is it going to end with random scenes of baby seals being clubbed?

Whatever. I donít give a sh*t--thought the original was overrated anyways. Iím more psyched about Prometheus. And Chuck Norris showing up in a major summer blockbuster.

Minkowski returns from the desert. You can stop pretending to be Bandelero now mate!

Leave Old Boy alone Hollywood! Spike Lee as well I'm suprised David Fincher didn't get involved he seems to like remaking my favourite films lately.

Hallway scene will be Spike's signature moment in the movie, huh? How much you want to bet it is Brolin rolling by the bad guy in a cheesy, fish eye dolly shot, with his hammer in the air, knocking out teeth as he glides by.
