Will Smith and Steven Spielberg Say Old Boy Too Sad

November 19, 2008


In the land of bad ideas, there can be only one… or two… three, at most. In a startling display of ill-conceived development deals, Will Smith and Steven Spielberg will remake Park Chan-wook's disturbing and awesome revenge epic Old Boy. If you have not seen the movie before and don't want your faith in Hollywood tainted, watch the above fight scene from the original film in which its star, Choi Min-sik, throttles about fifty dudes with a hammer, and then imagine Will Smith doing the same but with his requisite sass and probably a dog or small child tugging at his coat. Yesss, so awesome!


If you have seen the original or have no faith in Hollywood left to taint, watch this SPOILER clip and try to figure out how Spielberg and the American version's screenwriter, Mark Protosevich (co-writer of I Am Legend), plan to get around the taboo and resulting gnarliest scene ever that the entire film hinges on. After the jump, our spoilerific proposals for Will, Steven and Mark.




THERE IS NO WAY TO GET AROUND INCEST AND A DUDE CUTTING HIS OWN TONGUE OUT, DUDES.
