Allen Hughes will direct a remake of 2005 Korean crime drama “A Bittersweet Life” at Fox and New Regency reports Deadline.
The story follows an enforcer charged with escorting the young mistress of the crime boss. He’s under orders to kill her and her lover should he discover her having an affair.
Instead he beats up the lover and, now smitten with the mistress, is soon at odds with his boss. Anthony Peckham (“Invictus”) is being brought on to do the latest draft of the script.
