Director Kim Jee-woon's highly anticipated new thriller "I Saw the Devil" has its summer release date set for August 11, as announced by the film's distributor Showbox. KIM's return to the noir-thriller style of his 2005 hit "A Bittersweet Life" stars top actor Lee Byung-hun and leading thespian Choi Min-sik (Old Boy).

Both actors have worked with KIM in previous films, LEE playing the villain in "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" (2008) and the embattled hero of A Bittersweet Life, while CHOI starred in KIM's debut feature "The Quiet Family" (1998). "I Saw the Devil" also marks CHOI's first return to mainstream filmmaking since his portrayal of a vicious killer in 2005's "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance".

The new film has CHOI reprising the role of an extreme psychopath, who, when he makes the daughter of a retired police his latest victim, is tracked down by her fiancÚ, played by LEE, a secret agent whose scheme of vengeance is equally gruesome.

The film's international sales rep FineCut has already made a slew of pre-sales deals including to the UK, France, Taiwan and Turkey.
