Furthermore, the actor also told the reporter that since he wants to work with Park Chan Wook who had directed and wrote the script of Old Boy, it further influenced to take the offer. In one of the live television shows, Skarsgard praised Park by saying that he’s one of the greatest filmmakers.

Park Chan Wook is a veteran South Korean filmmaker, producer, writer, and film critic; Pan had directed Old boy saga which is acclaimed worldwide.
