Park Chan-Wook Swings “The Ax” Next

Having had to push back the project, filmmaker Park Chan-Wook has confirmed to Korea Joongang Daily (via The Film Stage and The Playlist) that “The Ax” will be his next project once he wraps his Hollywood debut effort “Stoker”.

A remake of Costa-Gavras’ 2005 film “Le Couperet”, the story follows a chemist who loses his job and decides to eliminate his competition – by any means necessary. Park is starting to work on casting and securing investors.

“Stoker” is aiming for a release later this year and stars Nicole Kidman, Dermot Mulroney, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode.
