As long as they?re willing to make their own spin on the film that doesn?t copy scene by scene then I?m okay with it.
please do not remake old boy that movie is a classic you will only ruin.
I'm with you, that movie doesn't need to be remade. Except this wouldn't be a remake, it would just be Americanized kinda like The Grudge and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are Americanized. However, at the same time if it was going to get Americanized they would have done it by now so it'll probably be considered a remake. The Crow is another film they keep trying (and failing) to remake and there is a damn good reason for why they keep failing...it shouldn't happen.
I mean, who can top the infamous hammer hallway scene?
I never understood how a remake ruins the original movie. The original movie still exists. Even if the remake butchers the concept of the original, that concept still exists in its perfect form in the original movie. I trust Spike as a director and if he thinks he can make an good Oldboy film I'm all for it. It'll be hard not to compare it the original, but I'll try.
