Korean cult director Jang Jun-hwan (“Save the Green Planet!”) has been lined up to direct a sequel to megahit “Tazza: The High Rollers” (aka. “The War of Flowers”) reports Variety.
Speculation on a sequel to gambling epic “Tazza” has existed from the start, given that the famous local comic that serves as source material comes in four volumes, each with entirely different characters and settings.
“Tazza 2” will be based on the fourth volume, which centers around the game of poker and sees the action extend to the Philippines and the U.S.
Jang will begin writing the film’s screenplay after a fact-finding tour to casinos in the Philippines. A release is planned for late 2008.
