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”).
