Spike Lee Reimagines A Contemporary Classic With ‘Oldboy’

112Opening in theaters today, OLDBOY is a remake of director PARK CHAN-WOOK’S infamous 2003 South Korean cult favorite. Directed, this time around, by SPIKE LEE, the gruesomely graphic thriller stars JOSH BROLIN as a man driven by revenge for his mysterious kidnapping and 20-year imprisonment.

Ever since the news broke that LEE was attempting a remake, hard-core fans have taken to the internet to voice concerns that the film get the justice it deserves. We spoke with SPIKE LEE last week and he assured us that BROLIN met with CAN-WOOK and was given his blessing provided they ‘make it their own’.

18Premiering tonight on HBO, MIKE TYSON: UNDISPUTED TRUTH is a one-man show in which the former boxing heavyweight champion bares all about the ups and downs of his storied life and career. Under the direction of SPIKE LEE, the show comes off as honest and entertaining despite TYSON’S often startling revelations about his relationship with the world around him.

We spoke yesterday with LEE about the show and remarked that, despite many remarks that could be construed as misogynistic, women make up a huge percentage of TYSON’S fan base. A longtime friend (and fan), LEE says it’s the champ’s honesty that makes him so popular.
