Oscar winner Charlize Theron is set to get revenge in CJ Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures’ remake of Park Chan-wook’s “Sympathy For Lady Vengeance.”
Oscar winner William Monahan is adapting the script from the 2005 South Korean original which starred Lee Young Ae and Choi Min-sik (“Oldboy”). It was directed by Park, who also directed the acclaimed “Oldboy,” which is on track for a U.S. remake from director Spike Lee.
Monahan, who won an Oscar for writing Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed” — itself a remake — recently wrote “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” for Robert Rodriguez.
Theron recently starred in “Prometheus” and “Snow White and The Huntsman,” and will soon be seen in “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
