Disaster Movie in the Works

2007/12/11 Source

In a joint-venture with U.S.-based Polygon Entertainment, Korean production company Doosabu Film is in the development stage for what will be South Korea's first disaster film. Titled "Haeundae" after its setting, the film will reportedly star actress Ha Ji-won ("Miracle on 1st Street") in the main role. The disaster will center on a tsunami that hits Korea's most popular resort, Haeundae Beach, in the southern port city of Busan.

The beach is home to Korea's world-famous Pusan International Film Festival, adding an extra dimension of thrill to the scenario. The project is to be directed by Doosabu head, JK Youn while Polygon, founded by CG-guru Hans Uhlig, will oversee special-effects and rights to the North American market.

Polygon and Doosabu will also pact on a second feature, in which Polygon will take on a full-co-producer role. The second film will also feature a threat from under the sea, this time in the form of a deep sea monster terrorizing the crew of an oil rig. The film hopes to follow on the success of previous Korean monster hits, "The Host" of 2006 and "D-War" of 2007.
