Spike Lee’s OLDBOY to include the iconic hammer fight and octopus eating?

While people may come out of the woodwork and say that Spike Lee’s upcoming OLDBOY project isn’t a remake of the Chan-wook Park film, but an adaptation of the manga instead, Josh Brolin has just admitted that the film will definitely be taking its cues from that iconic revenge film.

Brolin revealed that yes, “we’ll keep the hammer fight. And it’s a hammer and knife and all that stuff. And then will we keep the octopus, will we keep the other stuff? There’s some changes but I think it’s really good. It still makes me throw down the script half way through. Whoa.”

Penned by Mark Protosevich, I think that this film could be something quite good, particularly given Lee as a director, but let’s not act like they are not inspired by that original film. Personally, I think that given Lee’s penchant for a free flowing camera, or at least one that tends to stay moving as much as possible, this hammer fight will be solely Lee. At least one can hope right?

About Joshua Brunsting

Born in the tiny Michigan city known as Holland, and raised in the even smaller city known as Saugatuck, I have been a film geek for the majority of my life, and have known film was my passion ever since the final frame of THE LION KING. I’m a romantic with a thing for 60’s pop music (preferably French), John Keats poems, and an even bigger thing for film noir. Currently a Journalism Major at Grand Valley State University, I am using my love of film, and my deathly, ninja-like, skill behind the keyboard to slowly take over the world. When I’m not writing about or watching film, I’m listening to music, particularly from the likes of TV on the Radio, Best Coast, and Semi Precious Weapons. I play the ukulele, and I also have a deep and intense love for Gustavo Santaolalla and Ennio Morricone, but then again, who doesn’t. I was drum major for my high school marching band for two years, I’m one of the four people who actually watched Dollhouse, and my favorite film of all time is Godard’s BREATHLESS. I’m a wannabe screenwriter, a wild thing, a nerd, a geek, and most importantly, I’m a lover of film. Oh, and I want to be Captain Planet when I grow up.
