Park Chan-wook Picks Western as Next Project
The Brigands of Rattleborge, which will be financed by Red Granite Pictures and co-produced by Mythology Entertainment, follows a sheriff and a doctor out for revenge following the attack on a small town by a group of bandits. No word on a possible start date or any other talent attached at this stage but Variety speculates that due to the film's violent nature, a major star will be needed to come onboard. The idea of Park Chan-wook directing a violent western is certainly a tantalizing one.
Meanwhile Park's latest Stoker is gearing up for a March 1, 2013 bow. Penned by Wentworth Miller and starring Nicole Kidman, Mia Masikowska and Matthew Goode, the film is about a mysterious uncle who comes to stay with a girl and her unstable mother following her father's death.
