Will Smith Offers Up An Update On HANCOCK 2; Josh Brolin Comments On OLDBOY Remake
The Men in Black 3 stars each offer updates on their upcoming projects, with Will Smith making it clear that nothing is happening with a Hancock sequel right now and Josh Brolin expressing his excitement to star in the remake of Chan-wook Park's Oldboy.
Talking to MTV Splash Page at the US press junket for Men in Black 3 (released April 25th), both Will Smith and Josh Brolin were asked about two other projects they're attached to. For Smith, that's a sequel to Peter Berg's Hancock, while Brolin was quizzed on his role in the planned remake of Oldboy from director Spike Lee. As you can see below, their responses differ greatly and with the one project no more than a rumour while the other begins filming in October, it's pretty obvious which we'll see first! Check out the interviews below and be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
"This is a world where entertainment is consumed on so many different levels that sequels and all those ancillary products and that stuff are always in the working. There are so many outlets now that need to be filled, so I think that producers are always discussing those things. It's something I would be interested in. But it's not actually in the works as of yet."
A lot of people are bringing it up, which I love. Chan-wook Park’s version was, his original version of 'Oldboy' was fantastic. And I emailed him recently, and asked him for his blessing, that we do our version of the movie. And he was absolutely for it, actually really kind of happy that it was being done again and he was honored. He said that in Korea, people are very jazzed about the prospect of it being done here. So I feel that we have kind of carte blanche in doing our version of it, and I think Spike’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be great, I’m excited."
