CJ Ent. Makes Waves at HK FILMART

2009/04/16 | 613 views | Permalink | Source

The film sales arm of Korean major CJ Entertainment did brisk business at the Hong Kong FIILMART, closing deals on a slew of titles including pre-sales for its big-budget disaster film "Haeundae" going to Indonesia's VSG for rights over Malaysia, Singapore and home territory.

The Busan-set CGI driven film about a tsunami that hits the popular Korean beach resort of Haeundae, boasts a top cast of Sol Kyung-gu ("Oasis"), Ha Ji-won ("Duelist"), Park Joong-hoon ("Radio Star"), and Uhm Jung-hwa ("Princess Aurora"). JK Youn (JK Youn - "Miracle on 1st Street") directs with Hollywood master Hans Ulrich (Star Wars 4 & 5, The Day After Tomorrow) supervising CGI.

"Haeundae" also sold to Indo Overseas along with Kim Jee-woon western "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" for India. CJ also sold Kang Woo-seok thriller "Public Enemy Returns" to Palisades Tartan for the US and UK, and Jeon Yoon-soo's erotic period drama "Portrait of a Beauty" to UniArt for Japan. CJ also signed an agreement with Australia's SBS TV for indie-film "Members of the Funeral".
