LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Will Smith and Steven Spielberg are considering teaming up to remake the Korean film "Oldboy," Variety reports.
In the original, a man is kidnapped and held in a cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly he's released and given money, clothes and a cell phone and sets out to discover who destroyed his life so that he can extract revenge.
Spielberg has been reportedly looking for a project that he and Smith could team up on. A writer for the project has yet to be hired.
Spielberg's next project due out is "Tintin," while Smith's "Seven Pounds" is expected next year.
