A few months back we broke the news about a new Korean anthology entitled Doomsday Book, an omnibus sci-fi project by two helmers that looks like it’ll be pretty amazing. Now, it’s got distribution. M-Line Distribution has now sold the completed feature to Well Go USA for North American distribution. A few European territories, including Germany, have sold to Splendid. Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil, A Tale of Two Sisters) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel) crafted the film.
Per Screen Daily, “Korea’s M-Line Distribution has sold its high-concept sci-fi drama Doomsday Book to Well Go USA for North America and Splendid for Benelux and Germany. M-Line also pre-sold the film to Turkey’s BIR.”
“Two acclaimed Korean directors unfurl three unique stories of human self-destruction in the modern high-tech era. In a hope to restore the humane compassion in the insusceptible modern age, the film displays an alternative form of genuine humanity. And thus you are stepping into the world of future, where a series of unexpected stories awaits you. All these stories originate from the earth. From the very earth you live on.”
We’ve included the second Korean trailer inside. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t seen it already.
