    Josh Brolin & Mark Protosevich Talk Their Vision Of 'Oldboy', Steven Spielberg's Version & 'Inherent Vice' | The Playlist

    He said the Spielberg/Smith version never amounted to anything more than some “initial meetings talking about it,” but the direction was still going to be very much in line with the original. “Steven's son was a big fan of the original, and he said to his dad, 'You can't cop out on this, it has to be raw, disturbing and you have to keep the ending.' And he was onboard with that. I don't know if that ever got to Will, but needless to say a lot of times it just became a moot point.”
    Aside from the emotional difficulties, there was also the case of the physical; one of the centerpieces of Park's original is a one-take hallway fight that, in Lee's version, involves just as many opponents and two floor levels. Brolin called the prospect of pulling the feat off “horrible,” but admitted that it was ultimately very satisfying to complete.

    “I cried after we finished our last take, when we knew it was the right take—I think was the seventh,” he said. "I walked about five minutes away and started bawling, because I didn't think I could pull it off. I panicked and was working out twice a day for four hours total, along with a 12-hour working day, and I was very, very tired. I'm 45 now, so it's not like I'm 20 years old and bouncing around. I'm not like a rubber band; more like a board. I was really happy with [the fight]. I think it's three times longer than the original's, so it was really ambitious for me as an actor. As an actor, not an athlete.”

    Joe Carnahan Calls 'Death Wish' Remake "A Potential Oscar-Winning Film" In Livid Email To MGM | The Playlist

    When Joe Carnahan exited the brewing remake of Charles Bronson's vigilante classic "Death Wish" earlier this year, it was reported that it was due to creative differences, specially casting. The studio wanted Bruce Willis and Carnahan, well, didn't. But it seems that difference of approach really burned up the filmmaker.

    For some reason, nearly seven months later, an email Carnahan sent to MGM CEO Jonathan Glickman in April has started making the rounds, and THR has decided to it from their inbox and put it online. And it's pretty livid, profanity laced stuff — excerpts below:

    You had a potential Oscar-winning film with maybe the best script in Hollywood but because you're a coward and a dumb c--- you now have an untested, second-time director and an arrogant, lazy, aging action star that will run that poor kid into the ground.

    Good luck, *******. You're a spineless, gutless turd who doesn't belong in the business. Enjoy your run as a 'studio head,' Glickman. It's going to be a short one. F--- you, Joe Carnahan.
    reps for the director claim the email was a joke, that Carnhan and Glickman are "old friends" and that the MGM President even has the latter framed in his office. Even more, they say it's all cool because Carnahan is developing a project over at MGM TV

    I dunno...I admire the **** out of Joe Carnehan. The Grey was the best movie of last year and a while. Smoking Aces...brilliant. And his work on the Blacklist has elevated that show.

    I would totally be down for a Carnahan remake of Death Wish, starring someone other than Bruce Willis.
