Strangely enough it seems Spike Lee directing Oldboy was announced first,Oldboy was the sequel to Sympathy for Mr Vengeance,i am guessing we will get Sympathy for Lady Vengeance as well at some point
But its Sympathy for Mr Vengeance remake that is the news today
Director Spike Lee already has a mighty job on his hands, what with the English language remake of Oldboy that he's bringing to the screen later this year. We're intrigued, if slightly nervous, to see it.
But it seem as though the raiding of the catalogue of Park Chan-wook isn't going to stop there. News has now broken that the first chapter in the director's Vengeance trilogy, Sympathy For Mr Vengeance, is getting an English language remake.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are set to produce the film, and they've hired Broken City scribe Brian Tucker to pen a screenplay. No word on a director yet, but we'll keep you posted as we hear more...
