SEOUL -- Kim Jee-woon's Manchurian western "The Good, the Bad and the Weird," perhaps Korea's most anticipated film of 2008, has seen its domestic release pushed back to early summer, The Hollywood Reporter learned over the weekend.
The story of Korean outlaws in 1930s Manchuria, "The Good" had been scheduled to open around Lunar New Year, in early February, but shooting delays to the ambitious project have forced the production company to aim for the lucrative summer season instead.
"Actually, we like it better", said Chi Sang-eun, manager at Cineclick Asia, the movie's international sales company. "We were planning on presenting the movie at Cannes anyway, so now we can try to premiere it there. This is ideal for us."
With director Kim, who directed such critical and commercial successes as "Tale of Two Sisters" and "A Bittersweet Life", and three of Korea's biggest stars -- Lee Byung-hun, Jung Woo-sung and Song Kang-ho -- "The Good" has been closely watched since it was announced in early 2007. »
