One of the more commercially-successful directors in his native South Korea, Kim Ji-Woon is getting ready for his first international production, and he already has actors in mind.
In an interview for the site 10Asia, subsequently posted in English by Twitch, Kim said his next film will be Max and the Junkmen, a remake of the 1971 French movie Max et les Ferrailleurs. Considered a heist classic, the original starred Michael Piccoli as a Paris detective who tries to raise his own stature by entrapping a group of petty thieves. It was directed by Claude Sautet.
Kim said he has finished the script, which he hopes to begin shooting in January 2010, with a fall-back date of around September-October 2010. Production would take place in Philadelphia, the weather hopefully lending a dreary look similar to Europe’s oldest cities. (Apparently, Kim had London in mind, since it was his first choice for locations. »
