Jung Byung-gil (Confession of Murder, 2012) is working with Park Chan-wook greats with his action-packed The Villainess, which is premiering out of competition at Cannes later this week and has already been acquired by Well Go USA for North America.
Kim Ok-bin (Thirst), Shin Ha-kyun (Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance), Sung Joon, and Kim Seo-hyung star in this insane looking thriller from Next Entertainment World.
In the film:
“Sook-hee, a trained assassin, takes revenge on the men who murdered her husband. After losing consciousness, she awakes at the National Intelligence Service. The NIS wants her to undertake confidential missions, but Sook-hee initially refuses. However, Sook-hee decides to accept her new identity as Yeon-soo in order to stay alive. Under her new identity, she meets Hyun-soo, and they dream of starting a family. However, on the day of their wedding, she is assigned a new mission that changes everything.”
Bloody Disgusting has some first stills to go with an exclusive clip that’s a POV shot that looks as intense as the scene in Gareth Evans’ The Raid films. I’ve always said I like the idea of POV footage being integrated into traditional storytelling, and this looks like an awesome use of it.
