CJ and Lionsgate Seek Korean Wedding

2008/07/18 | 400 views | Permalink | Source

Korean film industry leader CJ Entertainment has paired with America's biggest independent studio, Lionsgate, and Asian re-make king, Roy Lee's Vertigo Entertainment for a marriage made in heaven. They will co-produce "Korean Wedding", a project pitched and penned by Jason Filardi (Bringing Down the House).

The comedy is the first to feature miscegenation between an American man and a Korean woman as its main theme. The story is about a young American guy who falls in love with a Korean woman while teaching English as a second language. He proposes to her and she says yes provided her family approve and they have a traditional wedding in Korea.

Filardi will co-write the script with his cousin Iain McConnell, upon whose experiences the film is based. The idea originated when Filardi showed producer Roy Lee some of his cousin's wedding video. Lionsgate has put up development coin and the project, which has no director or cast attached yet, aims to be ready for a latter half of 2009 release.
