So there was that brief mention of Charlize Theron possibly remaking Park Chan-wook’s “Sympathy for Lady Vengeance”, and now we have Theron herself saying it. In an interview with MTV that she did a few days back, Theron is asked about “Lady Vengeance”, and she confirms that she is remaking it. Not only that, but according to her, Park has told her that he wants her to remake it, and that he wants to see the movie translated (literally) for an American audience. I kid you not.
