Director Comments on Possibilities of Live Action "Jin-Roh"

Kim Jee-woon talks about his plans following Schwarzenegger vehicle "The Last Stand"

Hot off the release of Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle The Last Stand, Korean director Kim Jee-woon sat down with Screen Daily to discuss his works and plans. Among the topics he confirmed that an adaptation of anime movie Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade is high on his to do list. 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.


On the subject of what he's doing next:

Making films in both Korea and the US would be most ideal for me. My next project is most likely going to be a Korean film – a remake of Mamoru Oshii’s Jin-Roh that takes place in Korea. I have a couple of US projects that I’m considering – a sci-fi noir and an elevated action thriller. Nothing is set in stone yet, however.


Some of his other movies include

I Saw the Devil

The Good, the Bad, the Weird

Two Sisters
