  • RYU Seung-ryong Confirms He Will Appear in Remake of POINT BLANK
  • by JI Yong-jin /  May 09, 2013
  • To Be Directed by JUHN Jai-hong of POONGSAN
    Actor RYU Seung-ryong has confirmed he will appear in the remake of the French film Point Blank. Point Blank is a French film about an average guy who gets involved in a chase to save his pregnant wife who has been kidnapped. It was released in Korea in 2010 and thanks to its tense action, it became the focus of much attention. The remake of this film is to be directed by JUHN Jai-hong of Poongsan.

    The Korean remake of Point Blank will be more narrative-driven with plenty of action. JUHN confirmed he would be directing it back in December of last year and the script is currently being adapted. RYU's management company said the actor is studying the script. He is currently shooting a period film about a real-life Korean admiral of Yi Dynasty, Yi Soon-shin, which will be released next year. RYU is to wrap up the shoot for that film and start working on Point Blank afterwards. Expectations are high for the Korean remake of Point Blank especially after the success of RYU's other films including Masquerade and Miracle in Cell No. 7.
