Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy was set for release on October 11th, but the date has been changed and we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to see it. FilmDistrict has moved the release back to October 25th, putting the movie up against Paranormal Activity 5. No reason for the change was given, but it’s possible that they wanted to move it further away from Sin City 2, which opens the week before.
“Oldboy is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.

As you can see from the Tweet below, the release date of Spike Lee's Oldboy has been shifted from October 11th, 2013 to October 25th, 2013. That's only a difference of two weeks and moves the remake away from Sin City: A Dame to Kill, but closer to both Ender's Game and Thor: The Dark World. However, this does mean that the release of the the film is now a fair bit closer to Halloween, something which might just end up working in its favour. What do you guys think? Spike Lee's Oldboy will now drop 10/25/13 instead of 10/11.— Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) May 23, 2013 Oldboy follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor’s motive.

A remake of director Chan-wook Park's 2005 thriller Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is moving forward at Silver Reel, Lotus Entertainment, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura's Di Bonaventura Pictures, and Cj Entertainment.
We reported back in 2010 that Warner Bros. had acquired a screenplay for the remake, written by Brian Tucker (Broken City). The writer is still on board the project, but it is not known if Warner Bros. is still involved or not.
The original Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance followed a deaf-mute who gets robbed when trying to come up with money for his sister's operation. This new English-language version centers on two grief-stricken men, both of whom have suffered recent losses in their life, who are hell-bent on getting revenge.
Oldboy, another movie »
Another remake is on its way thanks to Hollywood's undying need to take Asian cinema classics and redux the hell out of them instead of just releasing the original film here. Next on the old chopping block is a new version of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance.
Deadline reports that Silver Reel and Lotus Entertainment have partnered with di Bonaventura Pictures and Cj Entertainment for an English-language remake of Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. The script is written by Broken City scribe Brian Tucker, based on the first film in Park Chan-wook's Vengeance Trilogy.
The film centers on two men who are bound by their common sense of loss and headed on a collision course of revenge. The other installments in that trilogy are Oldboy and Lady Vengeance. A remake of Oldboy will be released in October by FilmDistrict, directed by Spike Lee and starring Samuel L. Jackson, Josh Brolin, and Sharlto Copley. »

AMC’s atmospheric murder drama, The Killing is back from the dead. After cancellation, a third season is in production now. One of the biggest shockers we’ve revealed about the upcoming new season has been the fact that Detective Linden, arguably the series’ most important star, isn’t a cop anymore. That is, she isn’t on the job when season three opens. Today we have more details on what’s been happening in Linden’s life. There’s a video!
Linden is wonderfully acted by actress Mireille Enos and the first two seasons of The Killing aren’t her only claim to fame. She stole a few scenes in her Gangster Squad role as star, Josh Brolin’s wife and she’ll play Brad Pitt’s bride in World War Z. How is that for high profile?
“In the last moments of Season 2, she really is adrift,” Enos »

The visual effects department had to do a pretty bang-up job to make Joseph Gordon-Levitt look even remotely similar to a young yippee ki-yaying mother-f---er Bruce Willis in Rian Johnson's time-hopping "Looper," but since Hollywood's baddest, baldest ass-kicker was blessed with three daughters and no sons in real life, there wasn't much of a choice. Sure, all that pain and suffering ultimately paid off, but there are some people who've got it way, way easier.
For fellow action hero Will Smith, for example, his prime mini-me is his own son Jaden who doesn't need a stitch of prosthesis to pull it off because, you know, doy. The two star as, surprise surprise, father and son in M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming sci-fi thriller "After Earth," and we swear that the older Fresh Prince Jr. gets, the more of that Big Willie Style he inherits.
Surprisingly enough, they're not the »

“Men in Black 3″ had some pretty nifty moments. Okay, it had exactly two. Josh Brolin playing a dead-on younger version of Tommy Lee Jones and that guy who can see all the possibilities around him. That was a cool character. Easily the most original thing the “Men in Black” franchise has done since, well, the first movie. Although it wasn’t really anything that franchise (or indeed, the universe) needed, “Men in Black 3″ did earn a whopping $625 million worldwide, which made it the highest grossing entry in the sci-fi/action franchise to date, beating the first movie’s $589 million. Though if you adjusted the 1997 original’s gross for inflation, it would easily beat out the third installment, meaning the franchise is actually losing steam and money with each successive sequel, given Will Smith’s ever expanding paycheck per movie. But then again, no one adjusts anything for inflation anymore, »
Keen to capitalise on the box-office success of last year's Men in Black 3 - which pulled in a global haul of $624 million to set a franchise high - Sony has officially given the green light to a fourth instalment in the sci-fi comedy series.
Up-and-coming screenwriter Oren Uziel has been hired to pen the script for Men in Black 4, and he will also develop the draft for another of the studio's upcoming sequels - the Channing Tatum / Jonah Hill buddy cop comedy 21 Jump Street 2.
Having written the 2010 short Mortal Kombat: Rebirth and co-created the subsequent web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Oren Uziel has since signed on to write the screenplay for Warner Bros.' proposed big screen reboot of the popular beat-em-up video game franchise, while Sony is also producing his Black List script for a sci-fi/horror comedy entitled The Kitchen Sink. He will begin work on »

Star not confirmed to reprise role of Agent J as screenwriter Oren Uziel begins followup to franchise-best third film
Studio Sony has asked screenwriter Oren Uziel to script Men in Black 4 following the critical and commercial success of the belated third film in the series last year. Men in Black 3, which featured Smith alongside older and younger versions of partner Agent K played by Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin, took a franchise-best $624m across the globe.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, it is not clear at this stage whether the famously picky Smith is interested in reprising the role of Agent J, and there's no deal in place for Brolin to return either. Likewise Britain's Emma Thompson, who played new character Agent O, »

Sony is now actively pushing ahead on development for a fourth Men In Black movie, hardly a major shock given the (slightly) better critical reception and decent box office of the third film.As The Hollywood Reporter cautions, it’s at an embryonic stage, and there are no deals in place for Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones or anyone else (including, should they want to exploit the 1960s-era Mib HQ, Josh Brolin or Alice Eve) to return, and the studio will no doubt be throwing this one over to the accounts department to see if it makes financial sense.Oren Uziel, who wrote genre-mash script The Kitchen Sink (also in development at the studio) is clearly the man of the moment for Sony, as he’s not only been tasked with crafting the first draft of the new Mib adventure (probably the first of many given this franchise’s history »
It’s official. Another sequel nobody was asking for has been green-lit. Men In Black 4 will be written by newcomer Oren Uzeli. What are the chances it will be good? Little to no chance.
Still, Men In Black 3 was a vast improvement on its predecessor. All inevitable time travel plot holes aside, the film was bursting with funny jokes and had a surprising emotional touch. It wasn’t great. But it was entertaining enough that I believe there is a little hope for the sequel to be worthwhile. A little hope. After all Uzeli has been hired to write the Mortal Kombat adaptation and the forthcoming sequel to 21 Jump Street as well. Clearly Hollywood has some faith in him.

Sony Pictures has hired scribe Oren Uziel ("Mortal Kombat: Rebirth") to pen both a first draft for a fourth "Men in Black" and the sequel to "21 Jump Street". Currently in early development, there's no word to what extent Will Smith is involved.
Uziel's commitment to 'Jump Street' will take place first so as to get the film in shape for a June 2014 release. Michael Bacall wrote the initial draft.

Men in Black 4 has been confirmed.
The fourth movie in the series will be written by Oren Uziel, reports The Wrap.
Uziel is a relative newcomer who wrote the upcoming Mortal Kombat film adaptation. He is also currently working on a sequel to 21 Jump Street.
Cast details and a release date for Men in Black 4 have yet to be revealed.

When you think about the ridiculous behind the scenes problems that Men In Black III had - including long delays so that the script could be almost totally rewritten - the movie itself is actually not that bad. The story is fairly stupid and there are some gaping plot holes, but the whole thing is kept together by the never-yielding charisma of Will Smith and the spot-on Tommy Lee Jones impression by Josh Brolin (not to mention a funny supporting turn by Michael Stuhlbarg). Audiences responded as well, with the film making $179 million in the United States and a crazy $445 million internationally. Given that success, Sony is going to give it another go. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that upcoming screenwriter Oren Uziel, who scripted the Mortal Kombat: Rebirth short film as well as the upcoming horror comedy The Kitchen Sink, has been hired by the studio to write a »
While Sony is patiently awaiting Oren Uziel's rewrite on the 21 Jump Street sequel, the studio has also tapped the screenwriter to pen another installment in the Men in Black franchise. Little is known about the logline for Men in Black 4, though the studio was apparently pleased enough with Uziel's pitch to give him the go-ahead. It's unclear at this time just how involved Will Smith would be with a fourth film and there are currently no deals for either Josh Brolin or Emma Thompson to return. After Men in Black 3 went on to earn a franchise-best $624 million, the studio is obviously eager to get another film in development. Uziel, however, will have to finish his draft on the 21 Jump Street sequel first, which Sony has already slated for a June 6, 2014 release. Hit the jump for more. The Wrap reports that Uziel has been tapped by Sony to pen »
