Danny Boyle Asked to Direct Lady Vengeance Remake

2009/01/14 | Permalink | Source

Reports of remakes of Park Chan-wook's vengeance trilogy films have been headline news in the entertainment industry over the past year. The latest comes from the mouth of director Danny Boyle (Golden Globe winner for Slum Dog Millionaire) who told Empire Online that he has been asked to direct the remake of PARK's "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance".

The film, PARK's final installment in the revenge trilogy, made news earlier last year when actress Charlize Theron announced she would produce the project and take the lead role (play by Lee Young-ae in the original).

Boyle, who has won numerous awards for hits such as Trainspotting, The Beach, and 28 Days Later, was expected to direct The Bromeliad trilogy for Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks, but announced that the project had fallen through, making "Lady Vengeance" a serious possibility. Boyle added that he had just bought a DVD of PARK's first installment, "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance".

The news follows on reports late last year that Spielberg and Will Smith were considering a remake of PARK's 2004 Cannes Grand Prize winner "Old Boy". An exciting surmise would be that Spielberg may back "Lady Vengeance" with Theron starring and producing and Boyle directing.
