Empire Online recently held a webchat with Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle who, while talking about future projects, revealed that he's been asked to direct an English-language remake of Chan-wook Park's Lady Vengeance. Here are some of the snippets from the chat below, where he also discusses the 28 Days Later franchise and more.
Kinema asks: What do you think of the Asian Film Industry, mainly South Korea and Hong Kong? A lot of South Korean movies are being made into US Remakes. Would you ever consider remaking a good South Korean movie, maybe Oldboy?
thebestnameshavegone asks: Is there any news regarding Terry Pratchett's Bromeliad Trilogy which you were mooted to be involved with?
Oh God, yeah. It's fallen apart. Frank Cotrell Boyce (Millions) and I were going to do it for DreamWorks but sadly no longer. Sorry about that - wonderful novel(s).
brent71195 asks: Any plans for the Judge Dredd movie Danny? Are you a fan or is it just something that interests you?
Where has this come from? Someone asked me about Judge Dredd the other day! Well... ha! I hated the last version of it; I can't imagine the next one will be any better.
djimi42 asks: What is the future of the 28 Days franchise? Is there any possibility you could direct 28 Months Later?
Yeah, we've got a good idea for the third one. Very strange. And sadly we've run out of time to tell you about it...
blackmores hat asks: Can I ask what's the state of play on Porno?
Just waiting for the original actors to age. Help them if you can. Take them out drinking - get them away from the spas and those moisturisers.
