Spike Lee to direct OLDBOY

While not generally included in lists of comics book movies, OLDBOY most certainly is one — the tale of twisted vengeance is based on a manga by Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya (published in the US by Dark Horse.) Turned into an acclaimed film by South Korean director Chan-wook Park in 2003, it won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes in 2004.

Now Spike Lee will take a shot at making an American version to match the first filmed version. he’s signed to direct the remake, his first film in three years, from a script by Mark Protosevich.
Steven Spielberg and Will Smith were once attached to the film, but no longer.

OLDBOY involves a man who wakes up in a room where is confined for 15 years. When he learns of his family’s death via the TV in the room, he plans an escape and a grisly vengeance on those who imprisoned him.
