There have been reports that a script for a follow-up film has been commissioned, but Lee set the record straight in a recent chat with Vulture.
"I don't care [what it says] on IMDb. As far as I know, it's on the shelf," Lee clarified.

Lee is currently promoting the English-language version of the South Korean thriller Oldboy, but has said that he would not allow one of his own films to be remade.
