AFM: Roy Lee Acquires Remake Rights for ‘The Host’!

Another big announcement from the AFM is that the remake rights to Korean helmer Bong Joon-ho’s smash hit creature feature The Host (review) have been sold, according to KFC Cinema. Universal were the eventual winners in the apparently heated battle, with Roy Lee and Doug Davidson’s Vertigo Entertainment, along with Gold Circle producing. No word yet as to possible directors or cast, but the project will probably attract major talent and a good sized budget. Meanwhile, the film is set to hit UK cinemas November 10th, and is due to be released on DVD in Hong Kong and Korea at the beginning and end of December respectively.
