By | 25 Comments

Korea's Park Chan-wook has been a cult favorite director ever since 2003's Oldboy (which is currently being<a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2011/08/josh-brolin-lands-lead-in-spike-lee-remake-of-old-boy" target="_blank"> remade by Spike Lee</a>), but somehow, he hasn't left home to make Hollywood feature (probably all that sweet, Korean P-tang).

Spike Lee in talks to direct Oldboy remake. Wait, what?

Chan-Wook Park's Oldboy (2003) is one of those foreign films that so many people have already seen that a remake would almost be sacrilege, but in the eyes of studio execs, people who watch foreign films aren't an audience worth considering anyway so shut up while Kevin James takes a gorilla ice skating.

Even though I hate some of these peoples' movies (Cristian Mungiu's <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/?p=1189" target="_blank">4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days</a>, for instance - puke) by pretty much any objective assessment, the lineup for the Cannes Film Festival in May is a film dork's wet dream.
