SPIKE LEE Will Direct OLD BOY Remake

Spike Lee has been tapped to direct Mandate’s American remake of Old Boy, according to THR.

The original South Korean film was made in 2004 and was an adaptation of a manga. The film one the Grand Jury Prize Award at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival and is considered one of Asian cinema’s best films.

Mandate stated the story of Old Boy will follow: “a man who is kidnapped and imprisoned on his daughter’s birthday. For fifteen years, he is held captive, and upon his release, must begin a journey to find the reason for his imprisonment. He soon finds out that his kidnapper has plans for him more tortuous than his solitary confinement.”


Mark Protosevich wrote the screenplay and will also co-produce.

Lee has quite a challenge in topping the original film.
