According to Monahan: "This will be very American – and very unexpected. Park is a genius; it's the Everest of adaptations and I've got blood in my teeth to do it."
The film is set to star Charlize Theron, who conceived the project back in 2009, as the Lady Vengeance herself, which is whatever. As good as it was, Lee Yeong-Ae's performance in the original wasn't what made it so great, so I really have no qualms with that as a choice. I have a problem with everything surrounding her though.
For those of you who haven't seen Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, just know that it is a gorgeous movie, especially in the "Fade to Black-and-White" version. The direction and cinematography and general technical skill on display is just breathtaking, and I do not believe for a second that William Monahan will do the source material justice.
I am merely unhappy about the remake of Oldboy, but I am absolutely furious about this.
