Park's SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE Remake Moving Ahead
It was really only a matter of time before the first chapter in Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy, Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance, was optioned. Again. 

With the Oldboy remake by Spike Lee on the way this Fall and plans for Sympathy For Lady Vengeance somewhere out there in the production ether it is no small wonder that it took this long for someone to pick up where Warner Bros left off. A partnership between Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment has picked up the remake. They will be working with CJ Entertainment and Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.

There was a script written by Broken City screenwriter Brian Tucker back in 2010. No word yet on a director or casting. If the producers are moving ahead with Tucker's script we could have news about a director and cast sooner than later.

This one will be a really watered-down version. I always thought Mr. Vengeance is far more horrifying than Oldboy.
