It seems that fans against the remake of a beloved Chan-wook Park film may have finally gotten their wish. Latino Review is reporting that the Oldboy remake/reboot project is currently dead.

DreamWorks was in the process of obtaining the rights to the original Japanese manga by Nobuaki Minegishi and Garon Tsuchiya with Mandate. The film was going to be based on that manga and not the Oldboy film, but it seems that DreamWorks and Mandate couldn't see eye to eye and have left the project.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any new developments about this project as soon as we have more information.
