Ryoo Seung-wan Joins in HD Film Project of CJ Entertainment

2006/05/02 Source

The City of Violence (Jjakpae) will be the next action packed - film for director Ryoo Seung-wan. Ryoo's recent films were the critically acclaimed boxing drama Crying Fist (2005) and the popular martial arts comedy Arahan (2004).

City of Violence will be a HD film produced by CJ Entertainment. CJ Entertainment started a low-budget HD film project to explore the cost-efficient digital filmmaking and assigned some of South Korea's main directors. The first announced film of the HD project is Park Chan-wook's next film I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK.

Director Ryoo himself will play the lead character. The protagonist returns to his hometown for a funeral of his friend. His friend was the victim of organized crime and he starts an investigation to seek revenge.

Lee Won-jae who wrote the "Blood Rain" adaptation is responsible for the scenario. Filming started last February and apparently HD filming is not only cost-effective, but also time-saving; the film is to be released this June.

Director RYOO Seung-wan was part of the first books about influential South Korean directors published by the Korean Film Council (KOFIC). The PDF file is available for free on the KOFIC website: Open the link
