After directing TV projects for the past few years, Spike Lee is moving back to movies.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Lee will helm an English remake of the South Korean thriller "Oldboy," from filmmaker Chan-wook Park.
According to the Times, Lee is stepping up to the plate after more than one attempt at re-envisioning the film fell to the wayside, including one that had Steven Spielberg and Will Smith attached to it.
The movie tells the story of a man who was kidnapped and imprisoned for 15 years and doesn't know why. After he's released he tries to find out why he was locked away and then learns that his kidnapper has got more torture in store for him. "Thor" and "I Am Legend" screenwriter Mark Protosevich is penning the script for the adaptation.
Lee, for one, seems ready to tackle the project. "Wake Up. I been up since 430am. On the way to the set of THE NEW SPIKE LEE JOINT," he tweeted Monday. "Today is 1st Day of Shooting.Awwwwwwwwwwww Sheeeeeeeeeeeeet."
oldboy was a great movie better do it justice spike...but what's up wit that hat???
Don't like Spike Lee.
Don't care, either!
Where's a good drive-by when you need one?
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttt. spike keep dem good movies coming. cause ur sorryass knicks aint go when win a championship no time soon. go heeeaaattt. d\wade
Yeah, go Heat... back to the drawing board 'cause you can't beat the Mavs, sucka.
BTW, the Knicks may be losers, but being second place simply makes you the first place loser. Losers will be losers... speaking of which... I heard Carmelo and LeBron are going to play some golf at the course this afternoon...
What's "sorryass" is your grammar.
Let me guess. It will be another black movie. See, he's not hard to figure out. Make a black movie for blacks and I get 100% of that demographic. Then i get the stupid white people, who would watch cardboard dry and if you put in an explosion. Figure that was a good movie.
As a director he sucks.
HEY SPIKE, make a white movie. See how well you do 8)
Is there something about making a sharp distinction between 'black' and 'white' and especially for movies that makes you feel better about some part of yourself that isn't progressive enough to fit in with the way of the world now, or are you just blatantly ignorant because you can't help it.
the inside job fact check first
roger, I wouldn't take a guy named "big berd" all too seriously... can't even spell "bird" correctly... what a tool.
Different alias, same stupid troll.

It is not a "black movie." Go back and read the article.
