Well apparently Hollywood’s experiencing a dearth of good scripts and/or they can’t get enough of superior Asian fare *Asian Pride!* HAHA So yes, in the Hollywood remake of Sympathy of Lady Vengeance, Charlize Theron will play Lee Young Ae’s character, Geum-Ja. (Chinese source: here)

    i agree with you……

    i think hollywood cant compare to our awesome films. mostly awesome.

    now, for the day they remake the king and the clown…..

    These gringos dont even know they’re own name so they have to recur to the asians to know it.

    as much as i love charlize theron, but i’d still rather prefer the original. charlize looks TOO AWKWARD to do the role. she lacks or having no innocent/angelic angle as what is being asked for the character. she is way too stunning, and that will turn the remake too overacting.

    no one can compare lee young ae. despite her past formulaic roles, no one can compare with her with her performance and the way she did justice with her role as Lee Geum Ja

    I see that this post is from 2008 so I’m HOPING that Hollywood has dropped the idea of doing this film. Nothing will ever compare to the original! Lee Young Ae’s quiet intensity drives the film – it would be a crime for an American studio to try and copy it.
