- OLD BOY
ShockTillYouDrop.com recently visited the set of CBS Films thriller 7500 and was able to talk to the film's producer, Roy Lee, about his upcoming projects.
One of them is the Old Boy remake, to be directed by Spike Lee and starring Josh Brolin. "We are planning to shoot 'Old Boy' in March and that should start pre-production in late January," he said. "This is a brand new script by Mark Protosevich. It is very similar to the film, but Protosevich has added new elements that will throw off the audience who have seen the original movie because there are new characters and new situations that present themselves in a way that change the story but eventually go in the same direction. The ending will be something audiences--especially fans of the original movie--will be very happy with. Some may consider it a bit darker."
He added that "there's going to be a different interpretation of the hallway scene that is hopefully going to be Spike's signature moment in the movie that he wants to show in a way that has never been seen in an action movie."
