A new “viral” trailer has been released for Spike Lee’s Remake of Oldboy. Who the hell would want to check in to Hotel Oldboy when Sam Jackson is waiting for you in a tacky kimono with chopstick in his hair?

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.
