After filming in exotic places such as Panama, Lake Garda in Italy and…err…Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, Quantum of Solace director Marc Foster will be brought back down to reality in his next film, as he is heading to ‘the streets’.
According to Variety:
Universal is in negotiations to remake the Korean film “Die Bad,” developing the drama as a potential directing vehicle for “Quantum of Solace” helmer Marc Forster. Brad Ingelsby will write the script.
Written and directed by Seung-wan Ryoo, the 2000 original consisted of four short films that told the story of the rise and fall of a gangster. The components are being combined for the English-language remake that will be set in Philadelphia.
“It’s an epic story of friendship, and how a single incident can change one’s life,” said Ingelsby.
I am expecting this will be a deep, character driven film with 100% less product placement.
