I can't remember the last time I was so happy about something not happening.
I'm of the opinion that what 'remake' there was was still at the legal stage and that there never actually was any director/actors attached.
Still... GET IN. Spielberg? Smith?! Never would have happened.
A lot of movie websites seemed inexplicably convinced that it was going to happen, but it's all academic now. Now if someone can put the kibosh on that Bittersweet Life remake my day would be complete.
please dont tell me there doing an american remake of bittersweet life!!!!!!!!!!
i wont stand with it!!!
so they could have dodged the whole incest subplot anyway (the violence on the other hand...). Still, would probably have been crap regardless, probably just as well if it's dead.
will smith and steven spielberg can never ever, EVER be allowed anywhere near oldboy.
But just imagine the (new) (romantic) montage scene where Will Smith starts (over-confidently but hilariously) dating his own daughter whilst 'gettin jiggy with it' is played softly in the background.
It would have led to the same conversations I've had with a bunch of other Hollywood remakes.
"Have you seen Oldboy?"
"No. Have you seen the original?"
"Oh fucking typical, you're such a fucking snob."
They miss out on a good movie, I look like a douchebag. NO ONE WINS.
I'd almost got tp the point where I was looking forward to seeing Will Smith in that role.
[Will Smith flicks through photo album revealing that he's been having sex with his own daughter] "...aw, HELL NO!"
could be pretty entertaining
and shout "WELCOME TO EARTH!"
your version of my joke was better.
