Spike Lee confirmed for Old Boy
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
Spike Lee is a talented director. There, I got that out the way. Today we learn that Spike Lee is confirmed to direct a remake of the south korean film “Old Boy”, and he’s also resurrecting “Mookie” for a movie he’s currently filming in Brooklyn.
I like the idea of this movie. I find the premise very intriguing and think the Spike Lee is a curious choice for the job. I don’t believe that he will do a “bad” job just a really curious choice. I think this movie needs some really strong cinematography and would have envisioned Tony Scott being chosen for the job before Spike Lee, but I am optimistic that Lee can make this film enjoyable.The premise leads me to believe that he will need a substantially solid performance for whomever is chosen for the lead role so I look forward to hearing more news.
What’s also intriguing is the return of Mookie!
Spike Lee filming a joint in Brooklyn. Who would have ever guessed such a thing? Either way, I’ve put the movie on the radar. I wonder if this will be a spiritual sequel to “do the right thing” or not.
