Sony Pictures has picked up the remake rights to Park Hoon-Jung's recent South Korean crime thriller "New World".
After spending eight intense years deep undercover, a cop has become the right-hand man to the leader of South Korea's largest crime syndicate, Goldmoon.
Things get complicated when that leader is killed in a car accident, and various criminal factions vie to be named his replacement. Lee Jung-jae, Choi Min-shik and Hwang Jung-min starred.
Will Fetters ("The Lucky One") will pen the screenplay for the remake. Roy Lee and Dan Lin will produce.
