[HanCinema's News] Second Sequel Confirmed for "The Admiral: Roaring Currents"


On October 13th inside sources confirmed to press that funding has been secured for the upcoming movie "Noryang" by director Kim Han-min. "Noryang" is to be the second sequel to "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", following "Hansan" which is currently set to be released early next year. Director Kim Han-min is behind all three projects, which he has envisioned as a trilogy depicting the legendary admiral Yi Sun-sin.

"The Admiral: Roaring Currents" would seem an obvious candidate for sequels, due to the fact that it is the highest grossing film of all time at the South Korean box office. But on the funding end for "Hansan" and "Noryang" due to disputes over who should benefit from the likely profits of future films. While "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" was funded by CJ Entertainment, "Hansan" was funded by Lotte Entertainment and "Noryang" will be funded by AceMaker.

Kim Han-min also made the documentary entitled "The Admiral's Path". All three fictional admiral movies will also have different actors in the leading role. While Choi Min-sik played the admiral in "The Admiral: Roaring Currents", he will be played by Park Hae-il in "Hansan" and Kim Yun-seok in "Noryang". Both "Hansan" and "Noryang" are expected to be released next year.
