First Image From Park Chan-wook’s Vamp Pic ‘Thirst’!

One of my favorite directors of this decade is Korean maestro Park Chan-wook, who directed the incredible OLDBOY, alongside SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE and LADY VENGEANCE. Now, he’s completing a new vampire film for Universal Pictures entitled Thirst, which will see a release here in the States come 2009. Inside you can check out the first ever still from the film that features star Song Kang-ho (The Host).The story finds Korea’s leading man, Song Kang-ho, as a much-loved priest who becomes a vampire after a failed medical experiment; he becomes a tortured and depraved soul. Title refers to a craving for sex, blood and love. CJ is pitching the pic as a love story with horror and drama.
