Finecut adds three for Cannes

24 April 2014 4:39 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

South Korean sales agent Finecut has secured three new titles for the Cannes Market led by Ha Jung-woo’s Chronicle Of A Blood Merchant, based on the internationally acclaimed novel by Yu Hua.

Chronicle Of A Blood Merchant will be directed by Ha Jung-woo, who will also play the lead. Ha, star of The Chaser and The Berlin File, made his directorial debut last year with light-hearted comedy Fasten Your Seatbelt, backed by Cj Entertainment. Ha Ji-won from Sector 7 and Haeundae also stars.

Published in 1996, the bestselling novel is from Yu Hua, the celebrated Chinese author of To Live, which was also adapted by Zhang Yimou into the Cannes-awarded film in 1994.

Set in 1950s Korea, it tells the story of a man who sells his blood over the years in a draining effort to make his family’s life better.

Budgeted at $5.5m, Next Entertainment World (New) is investing in and distributing the film. Produced by Dhuta »
