It looks like Spike Lee will follow up his Oldboy remake with Gold, a film that was originally set to be directed by Michael Mann. "Based on a true story about the 1993 Bre-X Mineral Corporation mining scandal, Gold is set in the nineties and follows a rough-around-the-edges prospector who stumbles onto one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle," reports TheWrap. Casting hasn't begun yet, but production may start this fall.
