As if Sarah Michelle Gellar in a remake of The Grudge and Jessica Alba in The Eye wasn’t bad enough, rumours have it that Will Smith and Steven Spielberg may remake the Korean masterpiece, Oldboy.
*spoilers* *spoilers* *spoilers*
Oldboy is a classic. It’s not your cup of tea if you dislike violent and dark films. But it is very clever and well acted and has a great story.
Will Smith playing a man who accidently has sex with his daughter? No chance. He’s far too clean cut surely to depict any time of incest, even if it is, er, accidental. Yet this is a hugely important part of the story, without it, there is less impact.
Wrong, so wrong.
