Cineclick networks ‘Old Boy’ pic

'Samaritan,' 'Barber,' 'Doormaster' among titles sold

Korean sales and financing company Cineclick Asia has closed major territory deals on Park Chan-wook’s Cannes competition player “Old Boy,” licensing all rights for Italy to Lucky Red, one of the country’s most prominent art and crossover film distribbers.

Thriller “Old Boy” was also sold to Russia, while Noble Entertainment has taken Scandinavia on both Kim Ki-duk’s “Samaritan Girl” and horror movie “The Doormaster.”

“Samaritan” and recent Korean B.O. hit “The President’s Barber” have been sold to Thailand.

“We’re delighted to be working with Lucky Red, which has a long experience of handling somewhat controversial films,” said Cineclick Asia managing director Youngjoo Suh.

One of the most acclaimed of Asian films, “Old Boy” figures on the debut U.S. release slate of the U.K.’s Tartan Films, which has also taken U.K. rights.

Cineclick Asia also holds international rights to another hot Asian ticket, Hong Sang-soo’s “Woman Is the Future of Man.”

Earlier this festival, company announced that it was continuing its association with Korean auteur Kim Ki-Duk, repping his upcoming “3-Iron,” the tale of the evolving relationship between a tramp and a woman.

Cineclick will attempt to provide majority financing on Kim’s characteristically low- budget pic through pre-sales and sales, a strategy that reduces Kim’s dependence on domestic finance, guaranteeing creative liberty, said Younghoo Suh.
