A scene from film "I Saw the Devil" [Showbox]
Magnet Releasing, Magnolia Pictures' genre film label, has bought the North American rights to Korean director Kim Jee-woon's thriller "I Saw the Devil", the film's distributor Showbox announced on Friday.
"'I Saw the Devil' is one of the most riveting and unrelenting films I've ever seen", Magnet's senior vice president Tom Quinn was quoted as saying.
The film is aiming for a North America release during the first quarter of next year, Showbox added.
"I Saw the Devil", also set to compete at the upcoming San Sebastian International Film Festival, had been pre-sold to France, England, Taiwan and Turkey at this year's Cannes film market.
