Spike Lee Confirmed to Helm OldBoy Remake

Rumors about a Hollywood remake of Chan-wook Park’s OldBoy or rather the original manga by Garon Tsuchiya and Nobuaki Minegishi have been around the net for several years now. After Stephen Spielberg and Will Smith left the project about two years ago and other candidates like Danny Boyle and Matthew Vaughn didn’t get their chance, Mandate Pictures (finally?) got some confirmed news for us. Rope of Silicone reports that the studio announced that Spike Lee will helm the remake/reinterpretation after a screenplay by Mark Protosevich (The Cell, I am Legend, Thor) with yet unnamed actors.

Two Minute Preview for the Predators Remake/Reboot

Despite the missing Arnold, this two minute sneak peek for the new Predators from producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal (Kontroll) doesn’t look that bad.

With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members, human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.
