Spike Lee Returns To The Big Screen! Directing Oldboy Remake

spike lee to direct oldboy remake

Well…we know what absolutely EVERY film school kid in the country will be tweeting about tonight!

Earlier this month, Spike Lee spoke up about why he hasn't made any feature films lately, and he basically said that nobody will give him the $$$ to make them!

Looks like somebody decided to open their wallet, because it has JUST been confirmed that Spike will direct Mandate Pictures' remake of South Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy.

Previously, Steven Spielberg had been attached to this project, and Will Smith was going to star in it.

For those who haven't seen the original, Mandate is describing the film's story as follows:

"[It's the story] of a man who is kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughter’s birthday. For fifteen years, he is held captive, and, upon his release, must begin his journey to find the reason for his imprisonment. He soon finds out that his kidnapper has plans for him more tortuous than his solitary confinement."

Very exciting! We'll def let you know when we hear more, although if you have any cinephile friends, you can be sure they'll be keeping you well informed.

This is BIG for film people…almost as big as Derek Jeter getting his 3,000th hit is for everyone else. Ha!

What do U think about Spike Lee directing the Oldboy remake? Is he right for the project?

Move Over, True Grit! Quentin Tarantino Wants To Head West!

tarantino reportedly working on spaghetti western next

Those of you Tarantinophiles out there know that Quentin's totally obsessed with spaghetti westerns, so it should come as no surprise that he's thinking of tackling the genre next.

For those of you who don't have film-school obsessions with Quentin…SURPRISE!

Here's what actor Franco Nero had to say about the project:

"My next project will be a western. The film will be called The Angel, The Bad And The Wise and is a tribute to Sergio Leone . It's a movie that contains humour, lots of action, but also a great plot."

"The filmmakers involved include Quentin Tarantino, Keith Carradine and Treat Williams."

We're guessing we'll hear something more definitive about this soon, but we have a feeling this is going to happen.

Would U like to see Tarantino head west with his next film?
