“Oldboy” Remake Gets Decapitated

The planned Hollywood remake of Chan-wook Park’s acclaimed cult Korean revenge thriller “Oldboy” has been killed off reports Latino Review.

According to the site, DreamWorks and Mandate were in the process of obtaining the rights to the original Japanese manga on which the film was going to be based. However the companies couldn’t come to an agreement and DreamWorks has walked away.

As a result the two parties attached to the project, Steven Spielberg and Will Smith, are no longer involved.
