AFM: Finecut Hunts Down Na Hong-jin Thriller ‘Gokseong’

Leading Korean indie sales firm Finecut has picked up rights to “Gokseong,” the upcoming dramatic thriller by stylish director Na Hong Jin.

The film, which is now in post-production, is presented and produced by Fox International Productions, the local-language film-making unit of 20th Century Fox. Production is by Sidemirror.

Na made a splashy directing debut with visceral crime thriller “The Chaser.” His follow-up, an equally dynamic thriller “The Yellow Sea,” was also backed by FIP and presented in Un Certain Regard at Cannes.

Gokseong” is a change of register for Na who examines the idea that unknown beings can exert evil. The story sees a police detective investigate a series of unusual murders, but come to suspect that the crimes have something to do with his own daughter.

A stellar cast includes Kwak Do-won (“The Attorney”) Hwang Jung-min (“Veteran,” Ode To My Father”), Chun Woo-hee and Kunimura Jun (“Kill Bill”).
