starring will smith
Sounds like they will tone it down and totally change the ending.
and i bet money will smith will eat something else beside live squid
Well, no squid is one thing this Oldboy remake and the Watchmen movie will have in common.
i hope not.
If they change the ending then they shouldn't even make the movie.
quoted for TRUTH!
also, i won't be looking forward to Smith's usual cocky attitude. I don't think it would fit this movie.
I have a morbid curiousity for what they'll come up with, but I highly doubt it will be Oldboy. It will probably be closer to the shitty Bollywood ripoff of Oldboy, Zinda.
For those who don't know, watch this clip from Zinda and tell me it isn't a complete ripoff:
Oh, and the ending to Zinda is completely changed from Oldboy's.
FUUUUCK! No, they can't remake this movie. It was amazing; there is no reason to "reimagine" something that was done so well. And I totally agree with MrBlonde: if they change the ending, then there's just no point.
Is is because it has subtitles Mr. Spielberg? Or is it because there are Korean people in it? Are you a racist, Mr. Spielberg?
Everything Spielberg touches turns to mediocrity, but still manages to boost not only his ego, but his bank account.
I am very upset.
I can't fucking imagine this. Directed by Spielberg and starring Will Smith.
Yup. Why remake it? Fucking Spielberg.
i just saw this movie and loved the ending. if they change it, as already stated, whats the point of remaking it? the movie is made by the ending.
I really hope they don't do a re-make as I'm sure it will be totally watered down. And if they change the ending they might as well just call it something else.
they're going to butcher it..
this will be absolutely terrible
good movie, really fucking weird though, also the fight scene in the hallway was incredible.
did the actor actually eat that squid?
Why are you guys hating on Spielberg and Will Smith? Both are excellent and I'm sure the movie will turn out great if they decide to go through with it.
Spielberg and Smith are moneymakers, therefore the stuff that will come out will most likely be watered down to cater to the masses. The subject matter that is in Oldboy is decidedly NOT for the masses. Therefore, they will fuck it up, or make something completely different than the original.
Here's something I found linked off of IMDB.
Here are the production notes so far:
Garbage. do something else Spielberg!
