Will Bring BLOOD MERCHANT, FASHION KING and THE TUNNEL
Korean film sales company Finecut Inc. has finalized its lineup for the upcoming Cannes Film Market. In addition to other titles it has already begun sales on, the outfit has added a trio of new titles for their trip to the South of France next month. The new titles are Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, Fashion King and The Tunnel 3D.
Chronicle of a Blood Merchant is the second film that will be directed by star HA Jung-woo, following his well-received debut Fasten Your Seatbelt, which premiered at the Busan International Film Festival last year. Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, which will commence shooting in May, is a USD 5.5 million production that will be set in the 1950s and is based on a book by the Chinese novelist YU Hua. Director HA will also star alongside HA Ji-won.
OH Ki-hwan, following his successful Chinese language foray A Wedding Invitation, returns with Fashion King, a new romcom with JOO Won and f(x) member Sulli. Meanwhile, Tunnel 3D is a new mystery-horror film that takes place in a luxury resort by an abandoned coal mine.
The Cannes Film Market will take place from May 14th to 23rd this year.
