The New York-based film distributor has picked up North American rights to Shim Sung-Bo’s South Korean thriller Haemoo from Finecut in Cannes.
Shim co-wrote the film with Bong Joon-Ho, who also produced the thriller about a group of fisherman driven to madness when their attempt to smuggle illegal Chinese-Korean immigrants goes horribly wrong.
Haemoo premiered at Toronto last year and will screen at New Directors/New Films. The film will open in early 2016.
