Twitch reports that Spike Lee is in talks to direct the remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy.

In the 2003 Korean original, a man gets kidnapped and held in a shabby cell for 15 years without explanation. Suddenly, he’s released and given money, a cell phone and clothes and is set on a path to discover who destroyed his life so he can take revenge.

The film is set up at Mandate with Doug Davison and Roy Lee producing. Mark Protosevich (Thor, I Am Legend) wrote the script.
