No "Oldboy" Remake?

by | January 25, 2007 | Comments

If you’ve been holding your breath for director Justin Lin’s long-rumored American remake of his Korean action hit "Oldboy," it sounds as though you may as well exhale: Dark Horizons reports that Lin, at the Sundance Festival this week, told Bloody Disgusting that it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

Lin’s specific reason for this was the old "a lot of other projects in the works" excuse, but he’s long maintained that his satisfaction with the original "Oldboy" would preclude him from doing a remake unless it was absolutely perfect.
