The Host Gets A Remake

First Oldboy and now The Host - damn - like I've said before on remakes - on one hand I like the fact that a classic can get a new interpretation - but can't we at least give it a few more years?

Universal Pictures and Gore Verbinski will remake the 2006 Bong Joon-ho-directed Korean thriller "The Host," with commercials director Fredrik Bond making his feature helming debut and Mark Poirier ("Smart People") to pen the script.
All I know is this - and it's like I've said before - if they do the remake of Seven Days without Kim Yun-jin - that's when I'll get royally pissed.
