Chan-wook Park (Oldboy; pictured above) recently wrapped up Stoker for Fox Searchlight and now he turns his attention to, the much more violent, The Brigands Of Rattleborge. I read this script about 5 or 6 years back (back when Mel Gibson was considered a viable name to direct) and it’s pretty hardcore! Park will be right at home!
Per Variety, “South Korean helmer Chan-wook Park (“Oldboy”) is in talks to direct Craig Zahler‘s Black List western ‘The Brigands of Rattleborge,’ which Red Granite Pictures has come on to fully finance and co-produce with Mythology Entertainment. Red Granite toppers Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland will produce with Mythology’s Bradley Fischer (“Shutter Island”). The other Mythology principals are Laeta Kalogridis and James Vanderbilt, who will likely be involved in a producing capacity, though their exact credits, along with those of Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer and Zahler, are still being worked out.”
The film is an “ultra-violent thriller that follows a sheriff and a doctor who seek revenge against a group of bandits who use the cover of a torrential thunderstorm to rob and terrorize the occupants of a small town.”
