The remake of Park chan-wook’s Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance (which is no longer at Warner Brothers it seems) is gaining steam. Brian Tucker (Broken City) has been the writer on this for a while now and production companies Silver Reel, Lotus Entertainment, di Bonaventura Pictures and CJ Entertainment have partnered up to get this new version (in English, of course) off the ground. All this is happening out of the ongoing Cannes Film Festival.
Per Deadline, “Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing and Claudia Bluemhuber, Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, Jacob Pechenik and Gero Bauknecht are executive producers. This is the first acquisition in Silver Reel and Lotus’ newly formed partnership, one that is focused on developing and acquiring commercial and high-caliber projects.”
The original film is about “two men who set out to avenge the deaths of their beloved women, only to discover that each killed the other’s lover and in the end only one can have his vengeance.”
The hunt is currently on for a director.
