Magnet Releasing Picks Up I SAW THE DEVIL For US Distribution!
This film has been under some scrutiny in Korea for having scenes of intense brutality, so intense, that it was initially banned, for all practical purposes, in its home country. It took chopping about a minute and a half to get general release in Korea. Now the questions: Which version will we get? Will I Saw The Devil get a theatrical release here? Will we get different versions in the theater and on home video? I don't think we have the answers for these questions yet, but either way, I think we're in for a treat.
The dream team of KIM Jee-woon, LEE Byung-hun, and CHOI Min-sik is a Korean film fanboy's (or girl's) wet dream, and I am just such a fanboy. I'll not bore you with details about the film as there are many articles in the archive that are far more articulate than I could be, however, I will bring you the exciting news as I find it.
