    Jesus, wow. You know I didn't think I could be any less interested in this project. But no I was dead wrong, instead of being morbidly interested I just want to see the plugged pulled.

    The only way to understand this, its form the point of view of the executives at hollywood.
    Oldboy is a masterpiece, yet its barely known outside Asia (only horror fans know about it). So it is a good way to cash in some big money if the remake does well.
    For me, i can't even imagine such movie being made in hollywood: the story, the violence, the length of the movie, photography, etc. It's just too serious, i dont know.
    What they'll probably do is just change a lot of the story to make it PG-13 or something.

    You just have to know that with Smith involved, it won't have the same ending.


    But, I'd prob watch this anyway as a brainless action movie, and try to forget that it's a remake of an excellent film.

    How is to be Will Smith? Maybe is he the only one in Holywood to say yes about eat the octopuss? Maybe. Is remakes in Holywood is only about take a good movie and find way to make fans from the original hate and to make persons who is never hear of movie before think the orignal was bad to. Shame! I think is should be the remake script aprove first from original director and writer before its can to be mades!

    They conveniently failed to mention that Protosevich also wrote The Cell, which, just on a script level, is one of the most flat, derivative, and incoherent screenplays that has been produced this decade.

    Since Spielberg is directing, I think the best and most confusing choice for Mido would be Dakota Fanning. There'll be more controversy on the interracial aspect rather than the incest. Unless one of Smith's real life kids is willing to star.
