Choi Min-Sik was absolutely iconic in the Korean version of the film. Those are some huge monstrous shoes to fill. Josh Brolin is being eyed to star in Spike Lee's version that will be based on both the manga and the original film.

But since the offer's not out yet and nobody has signed, now is the time to wonder out loud a bit. Who would be a good fit for the role? Aaron Eckhart? Thomas Jane? Ive heard Idris Elba is a rumored choice. All of this shows where this might happen. Korea was the setting for the original film, but if caucasian actors are being sought after where will this happen? L.A.? New York? Another cliched over-used metropolis?

As a fan I tire of this news. But I will continue to bring you updates. How do you feel about this remake?
