While Focus Features decides when to release Park Chan-wook’s vampire-comedy Thirst in theaters, there is already talk brewing of a potential remake. While Park’s Korean producers on those three pics were able to deal directly with the interested U.S. parties, Thirst is a co-production between CJ Entertainment and Universal-based Focus Features Intl., so Focus gets first look on any potential English-language remake, reports Variety. While CJ Entertainment’s head of international film financing Mike Suh said it is still early days in terms of discussing a remake of Thirst, it is another CJ project generating heat. In the same article it revealed that his Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance is being remade by “Transformers” producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Chan-wook directed the critically acclaimed Oldboy.
