Now it appears that Samuel L Jackson is going to be involved in a small, yet crucial role.
Jackson has come on board for a small but critical part in the new film, according to a person close to the production who was not authorized to talk about it publicly. The actor will play the man who is being tortured by the hero (Brolin) in a key revenge scene.
Fans of the original will remember the scene as perhaps the most visceral and disturbing of the film. Protagonist Dae-su Oh exacts vengeance on a man who once guarded him by extracting his teeth one-by-one with the claw end of a hammer.
The new film, which begins shooting this fall in Louisiana and New York, won’t go with the tooth removal, instead inflicting a different kind of torture.
I wonder what torture they will go with?
The LA Times go on to say that Bruce Hornsby is involved as the film’s composer. That’s just the way it is. He has worked with Lee a few times as he composed the score for Lee’s basketball documentary “Kobe Doin’ Work” and “Red Hook Summer.”
