“Oldboy” is a Korean movie that has lingered in remakeland for quite a long time in Hollywood. Now the project is finally moving forward with Spike Lee taking the director's chair for the story of a man looking to get revenge on the person who imprisoned him in an apartment for fifteen years.

Josh Brolin is set to play the lead, and it looks as if “District 9” star Sharlto Copley has been offered the role of the antagonist. A role Colin Firth and Clive Owen passed on. Elizabeth Olsen is rumored to play the female lead.

If you have a chance to watch the Korean film, I recommend doing so. It's violent, but it's a great flick.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
