‘Battle’ to be Korea’s first 3D pic

'Yellow Sea' film based on 2002 gun conflict

SEOUL — Korean helmer Kwak Kyung-taek is set to make the country’s first 3D live-action film.

Tentatively titled “The Battle of Yellow Sea,” pic is based on the true story of the 2002 gun battle between the North and South Korean navies, the biggest naval clash since the Korean War.

Kwak previously directed “Friend” and “Typhoon.”

Co-produced by IM Pictures, pic’s budget will be around $2 million.

Lensing will start in March, and pic will be released during the second half of next year.

About 60 screens in South Korea are equipped with a 3D projection system, but the number is expected to rise to 100 by next year.
