Cannes: ‘Marriage’ Made in China

China’s Taihe Entertainment has picked up Chinese remake rights to “Marriage Blue,” a Korean ensemble romantic comedy.

The 2013 original was directed by Hong Jo-young and represented by indie sales agency M-Line.

“There were four couples in our movie, but it seems there may be more in the Chinese remake as they plan to turn it into a TV series,” said Michelle Son, M-Line principal.

M-Line is also in talks on other remake deals, most notably on “Scandal Makers,” a hit Korean comedy about a radio DJ who finds out that he may have fathered a child with one of his listeners. The film sold 8.3 million tickets in 2009.

It is now being remade in Russia by Timur Bekmambetov’s Bazelevs Production, while the company has a letter of intent with “Men in Black” director Barry Sonnenfeld for a U.S. retread.
