Spielbergs Oldboy Remake Dead

Meh

Ah well it seems that the Oldboy remake is very much dead in the water. latino review is reporting that Dreamworks was not able to come to terms with Mandate who own the rights. The film was supposed to star Will Smith and be developed by Steven Spielberg. Oldboy is an awesome movie and one a remake might not do justice... but its also one remake I really wanted to see.

A redo of Oldboy with an R rating could have been a fun thrill ride. But in fairness I am a Will Smith fan and a Spielberg fan and I am sure you are not all in that boat. Saddened by this news? sound off.
