A Darker Ending for the Old Boy Remake…Is that even possible?


According to Spike Lee who is helming the hollywood remake the answer is yes you can.

The ending will be something audiences – especially fans of the original movie- will be very happy with. Some may consider it a bit darker.

I don’t know if happy is a word I would use in conjunction of  with Old Boy but given how dark the ending is on the orginal film I have no idea where they could with the remake. The other notable comment Spike made was on the fact that watchers of the orginal film will not have all the answers when going into the remake.

We are planning to shoot ‘Old Boy’ in March and [we] should start pre-production in late January,” he said. “This is a brand new scriptby MarkProtosevich (I Am Legend). It is very similar to the [original] 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

So there’s a lot of big talk at the moment as you can see and I hope the remake can live up to it. I’ve seen the original film and there’s is a part of me that’s interested to see if Lee is going to do the film justice or just give another limp hollywood remake.

What do you guys think?
