Spileberg & Smith's OLDBOY Project Isn't The OLDBOY You're Thinking Of, Even Though It Is!!

Merrick here...
A few weeks back we learned that Will Smith and Steven Spielberg were teaming up for a remake of Chan-wook Park's 2003 film OLDBOY (more details HERE). This news had many imagining a dramatically sissified, thoroughly neutered commercial vehicle. WHICH...could still be the case. This said, some may find comfort in knowing that the original film is not actually being approached by Spielberg and Smith. Will touched on the project while attending the premiere of his new movie, SEVEN POUNDS. FilmSchoolRejects tells us what he had to say:
"We’re looking at that right now. Not the film though, it’s the original source material. There’s the original comics of ‘Oldboy’ that they made the first film from. And that’s what we’re working from, not an adaptation of the film…"
...says Smith in THIS ARTICLE at FilmSchoolRejects. The comics he's talking about are readily found at (HERE). Simply type 'old boy' (no quotes & two words) into the search field to find multiple volumes.
