Spielberg and Smith are currently in early discussions to join forces for the very first time, on a remake of Chan Wook Park's 2003 drama 'Oldboy.'
The trade paper says if Spielberg is given the green light for the movie, the jack-of-all-trades Smith would be cast in the lead role as a man who avenges his mysterious kidnapping. Plans for the film have not been finalized as DreamWorks is trying to acquire the rights to the original film, and the new version would be distributed by Universal. What do you think of their new project?
