"7 Samurai," "Vengeance" Remakes Heat Up?

Contemporary Hollywood remakes of Park chan-wook’s "Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance" and Akira Kuroswa's cinematic classic "Seven Samurai" are both gaining steam.

Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment are teaming with di Bonaventura Pictures and CJ Entertainment to bring the new take on 'Vengeance' to the screen.

Brian Tucker ("Broken City") was attached as scribe some time ago, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing.

Meanwhile, Harvey Weinstein has reportedly "had a conversation" with actor Donnie Yen and director and martial arts choreography legend Yuen Wo Ping about the "Seven Samurai" remake in development at TWC.
