Oldboy, Josh Brolin
When he considered taking on an American remake of Park Chan Wook's “Oldboy," screenwriter Mark Protosevich (“I Am Legend”) knew the score. Much of our time during a recent Los Angeles roundtable was spent on his reasons for adapting the new Spike Lee-directed film, having heard the many complaints and eye rolls when the project was announced. And surprisingly, he counts himself among that crowd. “I initially heard years ago the idea of Justin Lin directing a remake, and my first reaction was, 'Oh, really?'

It's hard to believe, but it's been two years since Edgar Wright rocked Comic-Con with "Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World," and while we've patiently awaited his next effort, it's not long he's been sitting around twiddling his thumbs. Not only did Wright embark on a lengthy, worldwide press tour for 'Scott Pilgrim,' he worked on a script for "Ant-Man" with Joe Cornish and shot a test reel for it earlier this year; he co-wrote the script for "The World's End" which shoots this fall; and he signed on to direct "The Night Stalker" for Disney with Johnny Depp attached to star. And now, another project is now on his plate.
