Charlize Theron contemplates a visit to Korea

2008/05/08 | Permalink | Source

Major Hollywood star Charlize Theron said that her project to remake Park Chan-wook's "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" (Chinjeorhan Geumjassi) has sparked a great interest in Korea and Korean culture.

She is discussing the possibility to visit Korea during her promotion tour for her upcoming film Hancock, an action comedy with Will Smith as a fallen action hero who receives counselling to win the public's affection back. If possible, her first visit to Korea would take place in June prior to a July 2 release of Hancock.

PARK's original "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" stars Lee Young-ae. Her character has been framed. After her release from prison, she is out to take revenge. The film is the final instalment of PARK's renowned 'revenge trilogy' which also includes Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Cannes' Grand Prix winner Old Boy. Theron will produce and take the lead role in the Hollywood remake. Theron won an Academy Award for her role in Monster.
