Korean Live-Action Adaptation of Anime Movie "Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade" Planned

Kim Jee-woon's "Inrang" is in early planning stages

Director Kim Jee-woon, who will soon be making his English language debut in Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle The Last Stand, has signed on to direct a Korean live-action adaptation of anime movie Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade. The 1999 feature, directed by Hiroyuki Okiura, recasts the story of Little Red Riding Hood in the fascist Japan of Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii's Kerberos saga.

 

The Kerberos story, best known for its heavily armored counter-revolutionary police squads, is set in an alternate history in which a victorious Germany rather than United States occupied Japan after World War II, leaving a fascist state in its wake.

 

Oshii's live-action The Red Spectacles and semi-live-action Tachigui: The Amazing Lives of the Fast Food Grifters are set in this context. 

 

Kim's version, titled "Inrang", appears to still be in the early planning stages.
