Spielberg And Will Smith May Re-Do A Korean Epic

Will Smith and Steven Spielberg may enact their first partnership on the remake of a Korean thriller, Chan Wook Park‘s “Oldboy,” for DreamWorks and Universal Pictures, Variety sayswillsmith.jpg.

The film would mark one of the earlier DreamWorks/Universal efforts in the new deal between the two studios. DreamWorks will secure the remake rights and Universal will distribute.

In the 2003 Korean original, a man gets kidnapped and held in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly, he’s released and given money, a cell phone and clothes and is set on a path to discover who destroyed his life so he can take revenge.

Spielberg had been looking for an opportunity to make a film with Smith, who would play the kidnapped man if all the pieces fall into place. Spielberg is looking for a writer to begin the development process.

The film was originally set at U and then found its way to Mandate.

Spielberg is next expected to direct “Tintin.”
