The movie is to be directed by Korea’s Shin Terra, action comedy (“The Seventh Grade Civil Servant”) and is written by Edmond Wong (“Ip Man”). It is the story of five bounty hunters who chase fugitives for money in China, Hong Kong, Korea and Thailand. Locations are expected to include Korea’s Jeju Island.
