1019 Entertainment, MAM Media to produce film on Hungnam retreat

Ralph Winter and Terry Botwick’s 1019 Entertainment is partnering with Korean production company MAM Media on the feature “Oh! Hungnam — Exodus for Freedom,” a dramatization of the Hungnam evacuations during the Korean War.

Film’s slated to start production this winter in Seoul, South Korea.

The 10-day Hungnam evacuation occurred when the oncoming Chinese Communist Army forced the retreat of more than 100,000 soldiers including the South Korean 1st Corps, the U.S. 10th Army, 17,000 military vehicles, 350,000 tons of munitions and over 100,000 refugees.

“Exodus for Freedom,” the working title for the movie, aims to cover human elements and war’s harsh realities. The film will include a biographic episode of Sen. Paull Shin, a Korean-American member of the Washington state Senate, who was orphaned during the Korean War.

Winter’s producing credits include “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.” Prior to forming 1019, Botwick was president of Vanguard Films & Animation, president of Big Idea Prods. and held exec posts at CBS, Hearst Corp. and the Family Channel.

Shingle has more than 15 projects in development, including Dean Koontz’s “Frankenstein” franchise.
