It's pretty much official now. Hollywood's remake of South Korean movie "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" is no longer just the subject of rumors, now that Charlize Theron is confirmed to play the leading role of a wrongfully accused woman who emerges from prison seeking—you guessed it—vengeance. Theron has also signed on to produce, while screenwriter William Monahan, who penned "The Departed," has been tapped to write the script.
With grisly and complex plotlines played out in hard-to-look-away scenes, it should come as no surprise that "Lady Vengeance" isn't the only third of director Park Chan Wook's revenge trilogy slated for a remake. Director Spike Lee is currently filming his interpretation of 2003's "Oldboy," and rumors were once swirling around the Internet about Warner Bros. acquiring the rights for "Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance," the second installment before "Lady Vengeance."
