The latest Korean comedy film "Cheer Up, Mr. Lee" will be remade in France.

The film starring top actor Cha Seung-won hit theaters here just last week to coincide with Chuseok, one of Korea's largest holidays.

Industry sources said on Monday the film's producer, Yong Film, has agreed to allow StudioCanal, a leading film studio and distributor in France, to remake the film.

Producer Georgetta Curavale Izarn of StudioCanal said the company believes the film's "heartwarming sense of humor and emotional impression" will appeal to French audiences.

"Cheer Up, Mr. Lee" tells the story of a mentally challenged man who belatedly learns he has a daughter and goes on a journey of discovery with her.
