From Solace To Die For Forster

Despite generally dismissing the idea of doing another action movie after the upcoming “Quantum of Solace”, German-Swiss director Marc Forster has just signed on for one.

The “Stranger than Fiction” and “Finding Neverland” helmer is attached to an English-language remake of a Korean action movie “Die Bad” for Universal Pictures.

Seung-wan Ryoo’s original 2000 film anthology centers on a set of interlocking stories featuring the rise and fall of a gangster in South Korea.

Brad Ingelsby (“The Low Dweller,” “Buried”) is attached to write the script which will move the action to the US. Roy Lee, Brad Simpson and Doug Schwartz are attached to produce.
