Mix of Commercial and Indie Favorites Head to Montreal
North America’s top destination for genre cinema, the Fantasia International Film Festival recently unveiled the first wave of its 2019 program, which so far includes seven films from Korea, ranging from box office hits to award-winning indie dramas.
Fresh from its midnight screening at the Cannes Film Festival will be LEE Won-tae’s second film The Gangster, The Cop, The Devil. Featuring Don LEE (aka MA Dong-seok) this hard-boiled Korean thriller has already drawn over three million admissions at home and scored a US remake deal through Sylvester STALLONE’s production company, which will see LEE reprise his role.
The rest of Fantasia’s program will be announced in early July. This year’s edition will take place from July 11 to August 1.
