Variety says that Universal Pictures is in negotiations to remake the Korean film Die Bad, developing the drama as a potential directing vehicle for Quantum of Solace helmer Marc Forster.
Brad Ingelsby will write the script.
The film will be produced by Forster and his Apparatus partner Brad Simpson, Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison and Rick Schwartz of Overnight Productions.
Written and directed by Seung-wan Ryoo, the 2000 original consisted of four short films that told the story of the rise and fall of a gangster. The components are being combined for the English-language remake that will be set in New York.
