Korean Film Titans Band Together Under New Banner Anthology Studios
Acclaimed filmmaker KIM Jee-woon, top star SONG Kang-ho and veteran producer CHOI Jae-won (aka Jay CHOI) have come together to form a new production company named Anthology Studios. Ahead of their official launch, the outfit was bought by JTBC Studios.
In addition to projects by Director KIM, who will henceforth make all of his films with the company, Anthology Studios will also foster new directorial talents, to be mentored by KIM. Though no projects have been officially confirmed, the company is expecting to produce both a KIM Jee-woon film and a TV series in the near future, while they are also considering projects with American companies.
JTBC Studios acquired Anthology Studios for KRW 20 million (USD 18 million), with the three principals each getting a share of that amount.
