Back in November we reported that the Steven Spielberg-directed remake of the 2003 Chan-wook Park cult classic Oldboy was in talks to be made.

WAMG reports Will Smith recently spoke with MTV news, and he had this to say about the original Manga’s dark and violent nature.

“It’s the thing that Steven was attracted to.  We’re working from the comic and we haven’t done anything other than talk about it. So we’ll see what happens, but he’s not going to do anything that would be less than stunning.”

I’m desperately hoping they can’t come up with something ‘stunning’ and they decide to scrap it. I can’t imagine them trying to recreate the uniqueness of one of my favorite films ever. I would much rather them focus on different projects then waste their time with this.

What do you think of an Oldboy remake?
