ughh…I wonder why does she wants to do it?
Charlize Theron to remake Sympathy for Lady Vengeance
Director PARK Chan-wook is admired nationally and globally. Oscar winning actress Charlize Theron is also one of them. According to The Boston Globe who interviewed the former model, Theron will produce and star in a remake of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, PARK’s final instalment of the famed vengeance trilogy.
Sympathy for Lady Vengeance won in 2005 two awards at the Venice Film Festival, the CinemAwenire and the Little Golden Lion, and Korea’s leading Blue Dragon Award for best film, among others. LEE Young-ae plays a framed convict who meticulously plans her revenge while keeping up a charming and friendly demeanour. Her ultimate goal is revenge on CHOI Min-sik’s character. CHOI himself went on a revenge rampage in Old Boy, which earned PARK the Grand Prix at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival.
In The Boston Globe interview, Theron lengthily speaks about strong female roles. Theron’s beauty got her noticed in Hollywood, but she went on to produce and star in challenging productions, including Monster which earned her a Best Actress Academy Award.
