Justin Lin (“The Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift”) has been attached for some time to the remake of Korean revenge classic “Oldboy”.
At the time he stated he wouldn’t remake it unless it was perfect, but at the time nothing was happening with the film.
This week at the Sundance Film Festival, Lin tells Bloody Disgusting that right now it doesn’t look like the project will happen at all.
Lin says “he has a lot of other projects in the works and that the only way he’d make it is if everything “gelled” together right. He loves the original film and wouldn’t want to disrespect it” according to the site.
